RustyBrick SSL

As you may remember, Google starting giving HTTPS a ranking boost last week and that morning, Thursday August 7th, at around 10am EST, I migrated http://www.rustybrick.com/ to https://www.rustybrick.com/.

I promised to keep you posted on the status, so here is an early report. Within Google Analytics, I see no traffic changes, yet, specifically limited the traffic to Google Organic.

On Saturday night, I submitted the XML Sitemap to Google via Webmaster Tools. I forgot to do so on Thursday but the file was in place since then. Then Sunday morning, RustyBrick showed in Google under HTTPS in the search results. It did not show on Friday afternoon.

I did compare Google Analytics traffic but again, it shows no noticeable change from Sunday to Sunday. In fact, a see a small increase but that can be for many reasons.

Here are our stories on the Google HTTPS topic thus far:

I do hope to migrate this site this week.
