Does Switching Entire Site To Https Affect Seo
Posted 29 November 2012 - 12:56 PM
I have an InfoSec site and I was thinking of switching to https for the entire site with the premise being that it would eliminate script kiddies from running skid tools in the event that they find a hole?
My point is - would it affect SEO at all? Apprently it does make your pages load slightly longer?
Slightly OT but i think FBook are going that route.....

Well, you are starting from an entirely false premise. SSL only secures the communication between the client and server so that the packets cannot be intercepted and read.
with the premise being that it would eliminate script kiddies from running skid tools in the event that they find a hole?
"Script kiddie" attacks are NOT using HTTP requests, so the reality is you are proposing changing ALL your URIs and slowing down server response time for a vague idea that will have zero effect on what you are hoping to prevent.

Matt Cutts recently stated that Google doesn't have a problem with https sites.

Google doesn't have a problem with https sites
I think, that is not quite an answer to the question.
Clearly http or https make no difference, but does changing from one to the other cause an interim glitch ??
if so for how long would that glitch be expected to last.

In order that's:
Yes, No, Maybe
As long as it takes.
