The website is hosted on a shared server that supports SSL. The web hosting provider secures our website using SSL:
https://domain.com instead of http://domain.com
Ever since then all the client HTTP requests sent to the server are redirected to my website. Leading
https://otherdomain.com and I'm presented with a warning message.
I now know its my fault and I should of known that most SSL certifications only support one IP address but...
Google Search results for my website's target keywords is now displaying these websites above my own, even though they have nothing even remotely related to the target keywords!
- provide canonical URL in the HTML page.
- told the problem to the server manager, who tells me it's normal but he'll look for a solution. This was one week ago, no answer since.
I have no idea why Google is providing these HTTPS URLS: i thought someone would have to submit them, or have them inside an HTML page in order for Google to actually index dummy HTTPS domains, but i see no reason why someone would do that.
Any suggestion on how to solve this situation? Go-live is in one week and SEO looks really bad because of that.
