HTTP/HTTPS

Specifies which of these two protocols are being used (HTTP or HTTPS).

Raptor’s web crawler collects this data for every accessible resource on a site.

 

Values Returned

Within the column for ‘HTTP/HTTPS’, there three potential values that can be returned for this:

HTTP

If the URL is HTTPS.

HTTPS

If the URL is HTTP.

 

If the URL is inaccessible

 

What We Do

Without setting up a redirect to force all URLs to use HTTPS, it is possible to access a site from both the HTTP and HTTPS versions. Because we identify pages though following your site’s internal links, it can often become possible to gain access to the HTTP version.

We list for each page which of these two protocols are used.

 

Examples of How HTTP/HTTPS Data Can Be Used

The examples below show how HTTP/HTTPS data can be used for SEO.

 

Example 1: Ensuring a site is secure

We check every URL of a site and identify whether it is secure or not. You can use this data to identify pages that are not using HTTPS. You can also look at the internal linking reports to see what links point to HTTP URLs.

 

Example 2: HTTP/S Duplication

Although Google will now automatically show the HTTPS version of your content where it finds it, you do lose link juice when linking to non-canonical pages without a nofollow tag. You can use this data to ensure that you’re not losing authority or duplicating your content.
