    moving to https, will it affect ranking or indexed pages

    Hello dears,

    Hope you can help me with the decision,

    We are adding SSL and deciding to add https:// to the site

    Would this affect the current indexed pages in the search result?
    Duplicate content?

    Anything we should be aware of before adding it to the whole site?

    Thank you very much.

    You need to 301 redirect each page to the new page I believe, This will also help for old external links pointing to your old address.
    Do not simply redirect everything to the home page you must do it page by page.

    My guess for this is because google leans onto sites with https. I have read about that in search engine land. I have also thought the possibility of switching to that too. Reading at paraamveer's post above, seems like it's not that easy as you think it would be. My biggest concern would be how my traffic would adjust with the switch. Google seems to react to whatever major things you do on your site.
