    Question Any Pointers for Forthcoming HTTPS Move?

    Hi all!

    We're going to be moving over to HTTPS shortly.

    Everything 'internal' to the site is fine, including putting the 301 mappings into Site > Configuration > 'Site Options' (tab) > "Redirects for .htaccess (developers)

    However, I'm struggling to figure out what I need to do at the Google end to preserve our rankings.

    For example:
    - Google documentation says to have two sitemaps (one for new https site, one for http to https mapping). We don't have the ability to add sitemaps to our Bluepark sites (that I'm aware of!), so do we put the http -> https sitemap in our old Google Console http Property, and the new sitemap into the new https Property?

    I'm hoping that someone out there, who has already gone through this process will be prepared to share some of their pointers - and perhaps pitfalls - particularly of in the context of hosting such as Bluepark where we don't necessarily have the ability to tweak files at root level.

    Thanks for ANY pointers

    Niki

    We have moved in the last month and have not changed a thing but have seen very good results and have improved Google results
