Does Http and Https issue stops my website to get cached in Google?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have my website https://www.right2review.com/ . It is https in a desktop version and in mobile version it is http http://m.right2review.com/

My problem still remains the same that my website is not getting cached properly in Google.

1. When I manually submit from webmaster by doing the fetch as Google, it shows the result of Completed and when I submit it for the index, it gets cached. However, after a week or so, it again gets un-cached by Google. It shows 404 error for cache:https://www.right2review.com/ (Note: Right now it is cached in its mobile version when I manually did the fetch as Google)

2. All the internal pages are not getting cached. Webmaster shows no spam message, it is all clean.

3. When the website was on http all the pages were getting cached properly, without any problems. However, after moving it to https the problem is started.

4. Had proper 301 redirect.

5. I see no problem than having my website in different URL structure for https for desktop and http for mobile. Is this the problem for my website to not get cache?

Please help me out, as I'm unable to find the solution.

Thanks

Hi @Ruquiya A,

 

There are endless reports of stories like yours where a website goes from solid traffic and fully indexed by search engines with HTTP... and then a complete reversal happens with HTTPS.

 

With the links/tools I provided in my last reply, it empowers you to discover the reasons and how to bring about a solution on your behalf. It is going to take work on your part... and time for the website to regain the same placements it had before the move to HTTPS.

 

While I agree that you research and verify what someone in Google Webmasters Help Forum (if that is where it was) provided about HTTP Caching, I do not agree that it is your specific issue with your organic presence in the SERPs (search engine results pages). It could be an issue, in general, that you should verify. You should certainly lean on the Google Webmasters Help Forum but make sure the people providing the information carry the Top Contributor or Rising Star status for the most up-to-date and accurate information. 

 

When you run all of my suggested links/tools, you are going to find the issues with your website. Each one provides a piece of the puzzle.    

 

Further, Barry Schwartz is respected in our industry as an expert and he provided a quick checklist for moving a website to HTTPS. You can also do a Google Search for HTTPS SEO Help, Moving to HTTPS Help, and stuff like that and read some article from the top resources and get a solid understanding of the common issues, complaints, and advantages of various techniques.

 

Please let us know how things go.

 

All the Best,

 

James

Hi @Ruquiya A,

 

After doing a quick review of your website, and some elements of it, I would suggest bringing the website under one structure, meaning you should make the website mobile-responsive and not serve mobile from a sub-domain (and one being secure [https] and the other not). By serving two separate versions of your website, you have the inherent issue of making sure the m. version actually works in all web browsers and can be crawled correctly by bots. I think your website does have some issues, such as these, which is effecting it. While serving two separate websites can work and is an accepted practice, it does leave more things to go wrong. 

 

You would also want to feed Google a XML sitemap via Google Search Console (Webmaster) monthly and include all webpages in it. Make sure you are digging through every feature of Search Console. 

 

And you should utilize more META tags since currently you are only using Twitter Cards, Description and Keywords. The Keywords META Tag is too long, which could bring a negative effect.

 

I would also rename all images to be more descriptive and to use hyphens instead of underscore. And add ALT image tags to all images.

 

Run your website through WooRank SEO checker again (I see you did in August) and improve the factors that are not in passing score. Save the report and then run all of these below and save and compare results.

 

1) Visit Google Search Console and dig in.

2) Use the Google Developers Speed Test and work on fixing the issues so that your score is 89 or higher for both mobile & desktop.

3) Rerun the Google Speed Test but use this tool instead. Make sure you have a mobile score of 100.

4) Run your site through this SEO score checker.

 

Utilize the steps as they are outlined. Visit #1 and dig into your website actions with Google. Use #2 to bring your score up and get any optimized content to download & use. Complete everything and then go to #3. Complete everything and go to step #4.

 

Go to Google Analytics and review the data to determine what is happening. Look under Acquisition and under Behavior.  

 

Further, you should put this info to work for you. Remember that website speed plays a huge part in Google's use of any website today, so make sure your website speed is ultra-fast.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hi @James_Clemens

 

Thanks for all the suggestions. I will work on these.

 

However, I still don't understand when the same website is on http the Google crawl and cache it regularly. After moving it on https, the problem has started.

 

Today, one of an expert from Google product forums suggested me that the Cache-Control: private may the problem.

 

Do you have some suggestion about the header to be private is good or bad?

 

Thanks,

Ruquiya
