Google Turns Off Parameter Handling For Some Sites?

Oct 9, 2009 - 8:49 am 0 by

About three weeks ago, Google added parameter handling to Google Webmaster Tools. It basically gave webmasters another tool to help communicate to Google any duplicate content or URL issues.

I spotted two threads from the same webmaster, one at HighRankings Forum and the other at Google Webmaster Help where one webmaster is not allowed to use this feature.

When he goes to the parameter handling page, he gets this message:

Parameters for this site can not be adjusted at this time.

He believes it might have to do with his site being fully in HTTPS and/or not being fully crawled yet. I think it might have to do with the HTTPS thing, which is weird.

Google has not yet replied to the thread, but I do expect a response soon.

Forum discussion at HighRankings Forum and Google Webmaster Help.

Update: Google confirmed in the thread that this feature is not available for https URLs.
