Re-Direct Site

Hello

I'm AP and own http://ginelectronics.com . We have decided to be ahead of the curve and convert our site from http to https. We will change all the links in our custom pages, but how do we re-direct the site as a whole? Can you help us on this?

I've added an option in design->page settings that will allow you to show all results without pagination.

We don't offer the option to force all traffic to https. It dramatically effects the speed of the site and ability to cache content. https will be automatically used whenever necessary (for login and checkout) when enabled, but http will be used otherwise.

You could manually update the links you add to your site, but I wouldn't recommend it because it would effect performance without any real benefit.

Re-Direct Site

Understood, but that is too bad.

As I have been reviewing our indexed pages, Google has both http and https already indexed. Been doing a lot of studies on Google blogs and their webmaster tool forums. Everyone thinks it is smart to consolidate the http and https pages. So I decided to look into which one. Per Google, they give websites a small ranking benefit for https currently, but it is sure to increase in the future. Also, when customers see your site in the rankings, they are more likely to click on an https site than an http site. Thus I asked pro webmaster in the forums, and all thought it was smart to make the move. Since Google has versions of both indexed, as https://ginelectronics.com/categories/volume-controls for example, I had my employee change all our custom links to https over the weekend. This response from you is the first negative thing I have heard of https so started the change not even thinking it would not be possible. In testing both, I did not notice any speed of site difference, but you would know better than me.

Since Google is encouraging and the web is heading in that direction, please let me know when Cafe Commerce will be going there...

Thanks For Your Time...

I will add canonical links to the pages when people like you have an SSL certificate. This should force google to only index the https version and give you the search engine ranking benefits without actually forcing people to browse the https version when not necessary.

Re-Direct Site

Oh- great. Makes perfect sense. And I had read a similar post/comment to that before.

Again- thanks for all your help. We have completely changed our site in hopes to get some decent natural rankings, which will take some time, without have to give to much more money to the Den of Thieves, i.e., SEO industry!!!

That should be implemented now.

Thanks...

Also, since you fixed the page option, "pagination" I think you called it, can you get rid of the number one at the bottom of the screen? When hit it creates a URL mysite/categories/70-volt-audio/25v-100v-70v-pa-amplifiers/?page=1

thx

I have removed the bottom pagination when the show all results feature is turned on.
