Planning on moving to HTTPS? Here are 13 FAQs! What's missing? Let me know in the comments and I'll expand this over time, perhaps it's even worth a blog post or help center article. Note that these are specific to moving an existing site from HTTP to HTTPS on the same hostname. Also remember to check out our help center at https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6073543

# Do I need to set something in Search Console? No, just add the HTTPS site there. The change-of-address setting doesn't apply for HTTP -> HTTPS moves.

# How can we do an A/B test? Don't cloak to Googlebot specifically, use 302 redirects + rel=canonical to HTTP if you want to test HTTPS but not have it indexed. Don't block via robots.txt . More about A/B testing at https://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.ch/2012/08/website-testing-google-search.html (302 redirects aren't cached.)

# Will the rel=canonical guarantee that the HTTP URL is indexed? No, but it's a very strong signal when picking the indexed URL.

# What's the next step after testing? Follow our site-move documentation ( https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6033049 ). Use 301 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS, confirm the new version by adding a rel=canonical on the HTTPS page, pointing to itself, and submit sitemaps including both HTTP & HTTPS URLs with new change-dates (in the long run, just keep the HTTPS sitemap).

# What about the robots.txt file? The HTTPS site uses the HTTPS robots.txt file. Check that it's reachable or serves a 404 result code, and check that your HTTP URLs aren't blocked by the HTTP robots.txt file.

# Is it OK to have just some pages on HTTPS? Yes, no problem! Start with a part, test it, add more.

# Should I move everything together, or is it fine to do sections? Moving in sections is fine.

# Will I see a drop in search? Fluctuations can happen with any bigger site change. We can't make any guarantees, but our systems are usually good with HTTP -> HTTPS moves.

# Which certificate do I need? For Google Search, any modern certificate that's accepted by modern browsers is acceptable.

# Do I lose "link juice" from the redirects? No, for 301 or 302 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS no PageRank is lost.

# Will we see search keywords in Google Analytics when we're on HTTPS? This won't change with HTTPS, you can see the search queries in Search Console.

# How can I test how many pages were indexed? Verify HTTP / HTTPS separately in Search Console, use Index Status for a broad look, or the sitemaps indexed counts for sitemap URLs.

# How long will a move from HTTP to HTTPS take? There are no fixed crawl frequencies, it depends on the size of your site, and the speed of crawling that's possible. The move takes place on a per-URL basis.


Hope this helps clarify some of the open questions! Let me know if there's anything missing.

A beautiful selection of words
There are lots of moods, needs and feelings that our own language has not yet properly pinned down. The perfect word - even if it comes from abroad - can help us to explain ourselves to other people - and its existence quietly reassures us (and everyone else) that a state of mind is not really rare,

I really hope this is wrong
 
It's getting time, GPhotos reaches parity with Flickr in usability and features, and time to get the hell out of that service. Which is a fucking shame, the last iteration had so much potential.

Almost every personal revolution I've had started with humility. Fitness, career, relationships, learning… humility has been the quiet catalyst that I usually only notice in retrospect.

Admitting that you have room for improvement takes humility.
Acknowledging that other people outperform you at things that you value, that they got there by hard work and not luck, and that you can learn by watching them definitely takes humility.
Putting yourself in situations where you can grow instead of perform takes humility.
Listening to advice and coming up with ways to apply it instead of bristling and brushing it off takes some serious humility.
Committing to stay with it until you see progress instead of deciding it's "just not for me" takes humility.

If you want to aim to impress people, just do what comes naturally. If you want to grow, learn about yourself enough that you can notice when your ego is in the driver's seat and what you can do about it. It's really hard, but it's worth it.

Music is one industry where paying for streaming is worthless. You spend far more than if you bought music and have nothing to show for it when you stop paying.

In light of "Parsegate", moving from one proprietary infrastructure to another is kind of scary. Also, the process of liberating your stuff from FB to Google requires a messy hop from MongoDB. It seems Parse only provided an export to Mongo.
Anyway, if you want to move your Parse server to GAE checkout this post from +Justin Beckwith​​

Story
Tagline
A chaotic neutral point of view
Introduction
I make things (code/photos/words) and wave my arms around a lot when I talk.

I'm a Developer Advocate at Google.

I'm also the co-author of O'Reilly's "Apprenticeship Patterns: Guidance for the aspiring software craftsman" and you can find out more about that book here: http://www.oshineye.com/books.html

I'm also part of the small team behind http://developerexperience.org/ which is an attempt to see if we can successfully apply the techniques of user experience professionals to products and tools for developers. We call it Developer Experience or #devexp for short.

I believe that identity, like truth, is performed rather than expressed so here are some links that may help you understand who I am and what I do:
I help run a handful of Google+ Pages:
I participate in a handful of public Google+ Communities:
There are others but they're either private or delightfully obscure.

You can see recordings of various talks/presentations I've given: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4029784577E43D1E and you can read about the tools I use: http://adewale.oshineye.usesthis.com/

I got out without buying anything but the sales people were so aggressive I had to check my pockets afterwards to make sure I hadn't been robbed. Avoid!
