I thought I would ask a question as the amount of different sources that say this is right or that isn't right is unbelievable.
Let me tell you my situation, at the moment, my boss wanted me to add SSL to the website, to get the green padlock more or less. I've done this, while also using .htaccess file to force HTTPS.
The main problem is that Google is seeing
https://site.co.uk and is indexing them.
Will the page rank carry over from
https://site.co.uk using a permemant 301 redirection or would a canonical set to
https://site.co.uk work just as well?
