With the new SiteSSL (HTTPS) feature of WA, turning your site into a https domain is a breeze.
But what about all the work you have done building your online presence? Chances are, you have a plethora of profile links (social, YouTube etc.) that have the old HTTP domain.
Join Jay this Friday July 14th (5PM Pacific) where he will walk you through everything you need to know about how to switch your entire online presence from HTTP to HTTPS.
Really good and detailed thankyou
I followed Jay's steps on switching http to https and finally my posts/pages are getting indexed. I was unable to follow the process until i installed yoast seo, because that's what Jay did. Now my dasboard says it's not beneficial to have two xml site maps. May slow down my site. I completely understand that, but my lack of knowledge worries me on which one to delete? See,odd to delete the google xml, but I couldn't get my site to https without yoast. Help, rookie here. Really would appreciate help on this? thanks in advance
Here is Kyle's training that may help - Setting Up Google Search Console I believe he addresses sitemaps in here, using All-in-One SEO rather than Yoast, which is known to slow down sites.
Hey Michael, Kyle's training suggests the following sitemap: Setting Up & Submitting a Sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools However, these instructions are not "set in stone" and many members venture off from plugins that have been recommended. Simply pick and deactivate ONE of the sitemap plugins that you have installed. Check that your site is okay and that your sitemap is still working and then you can simply delete the plugin that you deactivated. If you sitemap disappears, reactivate the one you just deactivated and deactivate the other plugin. Check your sitemap again, if it is okay, then you know you can delete the deactivated plugin. Hope this helps you.
For google webmaster tools (who links to me) it says no data available. Did I do something wrong? Thanks!
Hard to tell since there's not a lot of info you gave here.
Thanks Jay for great training really helpful
