Moving from HTTP to HTTPS in Google Search Console


#1

I have moved my website HTTP to HTTPS but the site is currently added to Google Search Console as www.example.com and all the pages are indexed without using SSL.

How do I go about moving to the new HTTPS URLs on Google Search Console?

  1. Do I just submit an updated sitemap which has the HTTPS URLs or do I add a new site as https://www.example.com and submit the sitemap with HTTPS URLs? All current URLs are set to redirect to their HTTPS counterparts.

  2. Do I add multiple properties to Google Search Console?

Hi @sahil_rock, if the redirection is complete and http redirects to https, like http://example.com to https://example.com, you can add this as a new website on your Search Console and submit a new sitemap. After indexing, you can delete the old one (http), if you want to.
