Hi,

 

Currently only the login,register and checkout pages are SSL. But I want my whole website to be SSL Protected. But at the same time I don't want it to be negative on the current search rankings on google and I don't want negative impact on seo.

 

Please tell me how to do it safely. Anticipating a quick help.

You just need to make a 301 redirect in your .htaccess file to the https. For Apache server like that:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

Dont use htaccess. Goto all stores mode (or default store in single install). Then "Settings > Security Settings > Enable secure connection for the storefront". You should click the 2 below it as well to secure admin and keep HTTPS once visited.

 

And its not going to have a negative impact on SEO. Itll actually make it rank a bit better if you set it up correctly and use a cert from credible source.

Per CS-Cart creating 301's - I switched an entire site to SSL (from cart/reg only) and CS-Cart did indeed create redirects for all pages (yea!). But Google now lists 1,155 of 1,161 pages as "Excluded" from Indexing with the reason "Page with Redirect".

 

I'm not sure why but since all excluded pages are listed as "submitted" it appears to be because the Sitemap add-on did not update the URL structure at time of change, and for me still hadn't changed a single URL to HTTPS after 61 days and that includes items set to daily (homepage, products), weekly (category's) or monthly (pages). I just fixed this by manually forcing a new sitemap with the add-on. Hoping that helps cause yes indeed, my sites SEO now rhymes with ducks!
