Contacting Google

How do you get in touch with Google?

Two days ago, my site began showing as "https://www.domain.com" rather than "www.domain.com" - I think (from what I've read here) that it's a competitor's trick. But I can't find a way to ask Google to remove the "https" homepage (only one page of my site is https.) Their contact forms, when you can find one, doesn't have a comment area, only checkboxes. Any help - in either contacting Google or handling the "https" thing - would be very appreciated by this novice!

Hi Dragonlady,

I'd do a 301 redirect from https to https. You might also want to take a look at backlinks in Yahoo! Site Explorer and work with what you see there.

Bleh. That's me (above), accidentally logged in on my old account. Sorry for any confusion.

Ok Adam, I give up, why would you do a 301 redirect from https to https?

We also have issues with G indexing some pages as https,AND http . Both our secure site and regular site are the same, with the secure called during checkout.

Back to watching,

From https to http in this case.
Clearly, yesterday (July 2) was not my day, postingwise.

Thanks for spotting that, WW.
