    Question should I use 301 redirect?

    Hi there,

    Just a quick question on 301 redirect rule please. I have changed my protocol from http to https without a single backlink
    built to old version/http. Should I then apply a 301 on new location given that I have linked it up to GSC after migration has ocurred?


    P.S. Really appreciate your help and feedback

    Yes, just put the below code into your .htaccess file

    RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on RewriteRule ^.*$ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L]
