Actually we already switched. This question is more of an attempt to isolate the specific benefit that we may see from the change. While we will have some before/after data of specific keyword rankings, there are always other variables, such as competition. I was hoping there was some hard data on how much rank benefit might accrue in a situation where the 302s are all to the same URL but with HTTPS. A consultant has pointed out that the HTTP version was in fact indexed to some extent, but it still appears that Google is only showing HTTPS results for our keywords.

Understood. But again, to confirm, there is nothing to indicate that our rankings will change in the short term by switching to 301 redirects in our situation, since we are not double-indexed. For us this is not a question of best practice, it's a question of tracking our ranking and verifying which changes are causing the most benefit.

Clarifying the type of benefit I am asking about.

Thanks. I realize 301 is the best practice. But to clarify, Google is not indexing our HTTP pages, only our HTTPS pages. So is there any evidence that in our specific situation, we will see a significant ranking improvement from using 301's? From what I can see, Google is already smart enough to understand our setup.
