    Page position/queried keywords deteriorating


    Over the last two weeks - month, a website of mine's ranking/queried phrases and position has been sinking and deteriorating. I am not sure why. The only thing I can think of is about two months ago I added an SSL to the site, however I changed the target, canonical and other meta data to reflect the https.

    What would you guys recommend to check to see why this is happening? I do not have any errors or security issues reported on the search console.

    Any ideas? If you want the url to do a quick check, just let me know and I will pm it to you.

    Did you setup a new property in search console for the https version ?

    This actually was it. Right after posting I noticed I didn't add the new property. Thanks Chedders, just forgot to delete.
