This is not really a Sitefinity issue as a previous site structure issue. But I was hoping someone out there may know what to do.
We moved to a new Sitefinity site back in December. We also moved the ecommerce portion of our site from our main domain to a new subdomain.
Before the "move" tons of our pages were inadvertently indexed under our HTTPS rather than http creating a big mess in Google. As part of the "move" to Sitefinity we created a redirect table and all the regular pages (not https) get nicely redirected. Because we removed the SSL from our main domain, all those https links are all "bad" and they can't get redirected.
My idea was to purchase an SSL certificate again for the main site (we have a new one for the ecommerce subdomain). Once installed, shouldn't we be able to then redirect all the https urls and redirect them to the correct new urls? Once Google sorts it all out in a few months then we can get rid of the SSL.
Would this work?
