I have an online store and during the last 2 days I noticed a big change in its SERPS for some keywords. The site is indexed in local Google for 5 keywords, and the online store is based on Magento 1.7.
5 days ago, I set up an SSL certificate in the online store in order to get better ranking results. I setup the SSL and followed the instructions from the Magento to make permanent
301 redirects from the HTTP URLs to the HTTPS URLs. I replaced all the URLs of the online store with HTTPS.
When I saw in the SERPS that the rankings for some keywords were going up and down, I checked some URLs to see if all was going well with
301 redirects and found that the redirects where
302 and not
301, which is a big bug caused by Magento.
I solved the problem with the .htaccess, but still the rankings for the homepage have disappeared. I fetched the site again using Google Webmaster Tools and am waiting to see.
Can you please advise if I did something wrong, and what else I could do?
