    301 Redirect Change


    I migrated my site to a new domain name and put in a redirect from the old site to new site. The platform I was using at the time only supported redirects to http sites, so I ended up with a chained redirect

    Olddomain.com >http:// newdomain.com > https:// newdomain.com

    This appeared to be hurting my SEO so I migrated my site to a new provider that allowed a direct redirect:

    Olddomain.com > https:// newdomain .com

    I submitted a change of address form when I originally moved the site. Now that I have changed the redirect do you think I need to resubmit a change of address form? Or submit a sitemap from the old site to the new https version of the site? Or any other action I need to take

    I would just register the https site with google search console and submit a (standard/up-to-date) sitemap for your site.

    (I would also keep a redirect in place from newdomain.com > https://newdomain.com)
