I have a question for anyone with experience in migrations of HTTP / WWW to HTTPS.
My scenario is as following:
- My website is already well indexed and have a lot of users
- My website is indexed with both WWW and HTTPS versions
- It causes duplicate content and I am planning to make a full migrate from WWW / HTTP to HTTPS
Since I have 100+ great rankings as it is now on BOTH www versions as well as HTTPS versions, I'm a little concerned if the full migrate to HTTPS (meaning any other domain request will just 301 redirect to HTTPS) will cost me the great rankings I have now on HTTP?
I am doing everything I can to minimize the risk of the migrate, by fixing all internal links, doing the proper redirects by then etc. etc. and I have researched on the actual task for months.
But what will happen to the WWW versions and their (as it is today) great rankings if they now get redirected from HTTP to the same page but in HTTPS?
