    SEO for https sites


    I have an https site. All the http traffic is redirected to https.

    If some of the links on blogs and articles are for http instead of https, would it still benefit the SEO of my site?

    Or do I ensure that all the future links go to https?

    not positive but I would expect so and then again it may lose a little. Perhaps someone else will know for sure.

    Hey,

    You will lose a little juice because it's a redirected link and it's just harder for Google to know if that link was for that page.

    Also in the future you should make sure you link to your https pages and not the html.

    Hope this helps
