Ubersuggest tool opens up http version of site


#1

I was doing keyword research on https://neilpatel.com/ubersuggest/ for my domain.

When you type your keyword in they will show you on the right hand side the top 100 Google rankings for the particular keyword entered.

When my domain name shows up and I click it, it takes me to my page - however, the page that opens is the http version and not the https version.

This is strange because as far as I know everything I have done is correct in terms of SSL setup. I even checked my domain with https://www.whynopadlock.com and all checks out. I even forced the https version in my .htaccess file.

It’s not a problem on ubersuggest either because when I click on my competitors links it takes me straight to the https versions of their site. Also, when I enter my domain name into google - even the http version it only brings up the https version.

So why is it that when ubersuggest’s Google results takes me to an http version with no redirection?

Does anyone know why this might be happening?

Hi @b3pot6

looks like your redirect http -> https isn’t complete. But to check that, please share your domain name.

PS: Such a tool may be buggy or uses outdated data. But with correct redirects, this isn’t really a problem.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Domain is morejapanplease.com

You have incomplete redirects. The first three standard-redirects http + non-www-> https+non-www etc. are ok.

there is no redirect to https. So if Google or another tool has old links and a new user uses this link, the user isn’t redirected to https.

So find your redirect rules and change them.

Perhaps you may add a Strict Transport Security Header:

Strict-Transport-Security: max-age=31536000; includeSubDomains
