    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?

    Thanks

    P.S. Really appreciate your help and feedback

    You should redirect all traffic from http to https.

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


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

    Cheers!!
