I am working on a WordPress site that serves up HTTP pages statically. The problem is that some of the pages are shown as HTTPS in Google Search results. For instance, if the search term "Example Press Kit" is entered the search result site link comes up as:
We don't have a site SSL certificate, so surfers are being bounced. I have tried everything. Most recently I created a new website in Google WebAdmin for the HTTPS version of our home page. Then, I added site links that should have redirected site links intended for
http://example.com/*, but it doesn't work! Google still shows a dead link to
http://example.com/presskit. I didn't think dead links lasted very long on Google results, but there they are, two weeks later.
Any ideas? A
301 redirect won't work because the site doesn't even allow redirection from HTTPS. It is served by CloudFlare.
