SSL question

Hi there just a few questions. I have an SSL certificate installed to my ecommerce site and having a few issues relating with it.

For some reason it doesnt work with my SEO freindly URLS that I created in the HTACCESS file:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.dinkyfingerprintjewellery\.co.uk
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.dinkyfingerprintjewellery.co.uk/$1 [R=301,L]

Options +FollowSymlinks
Options -Multiviews
RewriteRule ^Category/([^/.]+)/?$ /category.php?Categories=$1 [NC]
RewriteRule ^Product/([^/.]+)/?$ /product.php?Product=$1 [NC]
RewriteRule ^Article/([^/.]+)/?$ /dinky-article.php?Article=$1 [NC]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} libwww-perl.*
RewriteRule .* – [F,L]



Ideally I want the whole website to use HTTPS:// as this would mean (A) Futureproof for Google liking a website a whole website using SSL (B) Means I dont have to individually alter code links in the navigation part of my website that relate to login/checkout etc.

Also another question, if I am using SSL and I am currently using Google CDN to access their JQuery libraries, Does this mean I need to now host those JQuery libraries onmy own hosting (since Google CDN only uses HTTP and not HTTPS:// protocols)?

See this page for details on forcing SSL:
http://www.besthostratings.com/articles/force-ssl-htaccess.html


SSL should not have an effect on your SEO URLS if it is implemented properly.


with the google libraries, they do support SSL. all you need to do is remove the protocol from the link, for example, instead of:
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.2.6/jquery.min.js">
</script>

use:
<script type="text/javascript"
src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.2.6/jquery.min.js">
</script>


this will cause the link to automatically detect whether to request the script using https or http based on the protocol used by the client.

Perfect thanks Jason, Also I assume that I would need to adjust my sitemap.xml to reflect on https as well and things like Google Analytics. And one last question in the robot.txt file can I use DISALLOW so that search engines done look in my webassist folder and WA_eCart folder? would this cuase any issues if I disallow these directories in the robots.txt file?

Yes, you should redo the site map.

i don't see why it would cause any issues to disallow the WA_eCart folder.
