Google HTTPS: Run On A Per URL Basis In Real Time & Not Part Of Panda

Aug 12, 2014 - 8:54 am 14 by

Google SSLAs we learn more about the Google HTTPS algorithm I want to keep you posted.

Three new tidbits came out on the topic through yesterday's Google webmaster hangout with Google's John Mueller on Google+.

(1) The HTTPS algorithm is completely separate from Google's Panda algorithm or any other algorithm. I am not sure why there was confusion on that but it is separate.

(2) The algorithm is a live algorithm and run in real-time. It is not run monthly or pushed manually. So you don't need to wait long for it to kick in. It basically kicks in when the new URL is indexed.

(3) It is not a site wide algorithm but rather an algorithm run on a URL by URL basis. So if some of your URLs are HTTPS and some are not, only the HTTPS URLs will benefit and not the HTTP URLs.

John is asked about the Panda relationship at 29 minutes and 6 seconds in and makes these three new points. Here is the video:
