How to Revert Back from HTTPS to a Non-SSL HTTP Site


#1

Reasons You Might Want to Revert :

#1: My rankings dropped!
#2: I haven’t seen any improvement in rankings.

I need your help @GulshanKumar Sir, can you provide complete tutorial?


#2

Do not revert.
HTTPS is future.

Analyse the reason for ranking drop.
It could be because of wrong redirections.


#3

its Just only for testing purpose. I have not been able to get traffic since I installed the SSL certificate, I have been fighting this problem for 2 months.


#4

That’s a terrible idea. HTTPS is not to be blamed.

You are hit by a solid G update :frowning:

Try building some links (edu) and improving the existing content. You will bounce back


#5

I just want to check that I did not make any mistake in installing it.


#6

@GulshanKumar will do look into it.

Reverting back will result in an unrecoverable disaster.
