I did a full redesign of my website to make it responsive (bootstrap), added localization, and also switched the whole website to use HTTPS.
My website use to default to
http://www.domain.com/ and now it defaults to
It's been 3 weeks since I made this switch and I have noticed a 80%+ drop in my "indexed pages" under my Google Search Console. Also, I made sure to apply the following when I made this switch.
- Made sure to use 301 redirects
- The re-designed site uses all proper and tags
- XML sitemap is properly generated using tags and re-submitted to Google
- I setup all the appropriate Properties in Google Analytics & Webmaster Tools for my new default loading URL
Is this 80%+ drop in "indexed pages" normal?
Should I be waiting longer to see if my website recovers?
Or should I revert back to "HTTP" again?
