Maybe somebody can explain why my site gets drastically different statistics as HTTP vs HTTPS?
I got my domain name through Host Gator a year ago. I got an SSL cert to have an Https site. I created the site via Blocs as an Https site and uploaded it and changes over the year as Https. Included in the created Blocs site was a GA tracking code for this Https site.
The site has about 7 or 8 pages. The stats for the site are understandably very low. Awstats gives you the option of viewing stats for SSL and http sites. Today I looked at the Http site stats and it has drastically higher stats.
Today Google visited both “sites” 155 hits and Bing 55 hits worth. On the Awstats http site Google indexed 15 pages and Bing 5 pages are indexed, two external inks are listed. On the Https site neither Google or Bing indexed anything and no external links. Google, bind and Yandex and other bots visit the Http several times a month
How can they find identical content and pages so different? Where do they get Http site info when I only use Https:?
I looked at other months and pattern is the same one site is “interesting” but not on my server and the other not so. GA statistic issues are very similar although you can get realtime comparisons of the two.
Any help would be appreciated.
