Updating listings from http to https

Hi there,

 

We are working with a business that has over 300+ locations. Their current GMB account has all of their location URLs associated with each location. Their sites now have a security certificate (HTTPS instead of HTTP), and they are redirecting from HTTP to HTTPS. Do we need to go in and update all of their GMB locations to reflect the HTTPS in the URL? What would be the benefit to doing this when it will redirect to HTTPS anyway? 

 

Thanks!

afaik it shouldn't matter and you don't need to update the bulk feed.

Thanks Helmut!

 

It won't affect the SEO value or how traffic is seen in analytics?
