http to https

A month back one of my website has been transferred to http to https .

I changed it as everyone knows HTTPS is a more secure version of the Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (http). HTTPS allows secure ecommerce transactions, such as online banking.

And now I am wondering that whatever promotion I have done, will go in vain due to change of http to https.

Will it create problem? Or it will take count as http?

I shall be thankful if you share your thoughts.

Thanks
Sunny

Did you install a redirect?

If you installed a deep link 301 redirect, i.e. http://www.example.com/sub1/sub2/page.html points to [example.com...] the larger part of the link juice you have on the http version will be transferred to the https version. Also people who are visiting you through external links, bookmarks etc won't see a change.

A little bit is going to happen though. Due to the redirect, the value of the link juice will be somewhat dampened which may slightly affect rankings in the search engines.

Also due to the standard behaviour of caches regarding https traffic there will be less caching of pages on intermediate proxies and on the computers of the visitors which will increase the number of requests to your server and increase the average page load time.
