I've recently started up a website:
example.com. I want to drive all traffic from Google to
https://example.com. I've added all 4 variants of the site to Google Webmaster Tools (
https://example.com) and had them point to the HTTPS version as the preferred. I've uploaded a sitemap to the HTTPS version and done all of my setup through there.
When I Google the name of the website ("example"), one of the product pages comes up (i.e.,
http://example.com/my-product), but not my domain's homepage. When I Google "example.com" it is the first result, but version of the page looks old and the sitelinks I demoted are still there.
So why isn't my homepage coming up in a search result for my site? If I want Google to represent
https://example.com, and not the other variants, do I just manage that version on Webmaster Tools? Or do I need to replicate the configuration for each version?
I've not had these issues with Bing. When I search "example", my front page is the top spot.
