Index status & SSL in Google News
Google shared an update on the 9th (link below), where they discuss verifying your website with both http
URLs. The reason this is interesting is that it's clear there are websites working towards getting onto SSL for a number of reasons. Furthermore, with this type of update for any site, the ability to get secure content into Google news has been difficult as a result of URLs, even with both http and https being verified.
Though the update doesn't specifically highlight this issues, if you read between the lines it does speak towards the problem in their vague verbiage: "in order to see the index count for your secure site
, you will need to add it to Webmaster Tools (e.g. https://www.example.com
) and then select it from the Site Selector."
Has anyone else had issues with their secure content being indexed?
