Hi All,

There is one requirement, where an https URL (mentioned below) is required to be indexed / made search able in Google.
This is a client request and we cannot change it to http in place of https.

https://<domain-name...d/efgh/ijk.aspx

As far as my knowledge is concerned secured site URL's are really hard to get indexed due to privacy reasons.
Our tech team wants the answer/solution.

Please let me know your take on this.

Thanks for your time.

I see them indexed all the time. As far as I know there's no special way to get them indexed, just the same thing you'd do to get any URL indexed.

No.

Using HTTPS to serve up the pages won't keep Google et al from indexing the site. Often, however, HTTPS content is served up after a client logs in, in the process of filling out a form, etc. These roadblocks will keep the spiders from passing deeper into the site, but this is not an "HTTP vs HTTPS" issue, this is a "spiders don't fill out forms" issue.

You can try doing a Google search for:
site:yoursitenamehere.com inurl:http
and
site:yoursitenamehere.com inurl:https

to see the current depth of indexing for the HTTP and HTTTPS pages of the site.

If you are using https then it already is!
