Warning: this is an strictly technical post.

Open letter to Google: please stop neglecting HTTPS in Webmaster Tools.

At englishjobs.de we take user privacy seriously, our cookies don't do anything but the minimum, our Google Analytics settings have all the more intrusive settings off, and since day one we support HTTPS. Actually, not only we support it, we enforce it. Meaning that if you try to access the site via plain HTTP, you will be automatically redirected to the HTTPS URL.

Last month Google announced that it will treat HTTPS as a ranking factor in its search results (http://googleonlinesecurity.blogspot.de/2014/08/https-as-ranking-signal_6.html). All part of a global initiative to push HTTPS all over the web. This made us very happy, since we could certainly enjoy some more traffic from organic search. But also because we thought Google would stop neglecting their support for HTTPS in their Webmaster Tools. Sadly that’s still not the case.

Like every pice of software, GTW has its share of bugs and we are currently experiencing some of them. But support for HTTPS seems not be a bug but simply forgotten. 

Take the "Fetch as Google" functionality as an example, you get your domain name pre-filled with the insecure URL and no possibility to change it, rendering the tool unusable since all you can see as googlebot are redirections.

Maybe even worse is trying to use the "Data Highlighter", a tool that allows you to annotate data in your website so Google can better understand its content. While you are allowed you insert the full URL of the page to be annotated, trying to introduce a HTTPS URL produces the heartbreaking error "URL must begin with http://englishjobs.de".

Enforcing #https  is mostly regarded as a good practice, and we are far from the only website in the internet doing it. So please #google , fix #gwt
