I need to move a large 200,000 page site to https that the site has both versions live and both are indexed i’m thinking of instead doing straight up permanent redirect put Canonical’s and wait tell Google moves all of the pages would that be good strategy?

JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

That definitely works as well I think for the long run you’ll want to use redirects and probably also set up HTS HTS so that users automatically go to HTTPS version of the page but if you’re kind of cautious and you want to be sure that things are working well then a canonical is a good way to let users access both versions but to encourage google to access our index HTTPS version i have 11 sure it’s something kind of strange one aside the it is ranking really well for the most related keywords but it’s a personal side of someone but the problem is it is not really drinking for a person named itself.
