My site is indexed in google with too different domain names , one with http and another with https . I was just wondering that if there is something I should do like trying omit one , or there is no problem and Google will take it . Thanks.

  • We get this question a lot! You should only ever have one. You will likely want to redirect your HTTP site to HTTPS. Otherwise, if you do not redirect one to the other, you should use a canonical tag on your site to indicate only one is to be indexed. support.google.com/webmasters/answer/139066?hl=en This will avoid duplicate content issues and allow which ever site you chose to perform properly.

Since the web is moving to https, you ought to consider forcing all visitors to https.

You can do this by inserting the following code in your .htaccess file

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} =80
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

However you need to check your site does not have 'mixed content' of http and https. You will see a secure padlock if everything is OK. If not, check the console in Developer Tools in your browser.
