Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I changed my entire site over to HTTPS from HTTP. I have my HTTP site setup in G webmaster Tools. I have just fed that a new sitemap with all my https urls and it seems to be taking them.
Should I "add a new site" to my webmaster tool profiles specifying https?
Currently it is: http://www.example.com/sitemap
Is it worth deleting this site from my webmaster tools profile and adding a new site with the proper HTTPS ?

[edit reason] changed to example.com - it can never be owned [/edit]
I switched my site to HTTPS because I was having issues with my cart dropping items so why not give my customers security the whole time?
Once I add this new site to G webmaster tools, should I delete the old site(non https version) from my profile?
Add to the httpd.ini
RewriteRule ^/robots.txt$ /robots.aspx [NC,O]
make 2 robots files one robots.txt and one robots.aspx add the code below after you have changed the httd to dissalow all and the https to allow all or disallow what you dont wwant spidered.
<%If Request.ServerVariables("HTTPS") = "off" Then 'if not secure%>User-agent: *
be sure and test it as well
http://www.example.com robots.txt should show disallow all
[example.com...] should show to allow all or your folders you dont want spidered.
I had a customer wants call and ask me why my whole site wasnt not secure because when he goes to his banking site everything is secure. Makes sense for a bank.
