Google Indexing My Website With HTTPS (3 posts)

    For some reason Google is indexing my pages using https intead of http.

    This is a big mystery to me since I don't have a SSL cert for the domain and never have. But yet Google is successfully crawling the pages with the https version and the title tags and descriptions are even showing correctly. But of course when you click on the Google link it takes you to the site with the SSL error instead of the page.

    - I use canonical url's and have them set correctly
    - I have a Google Webmaster tools account and everything appears to be in order

    - I never changed the default .htaccess file but here it is:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    - And my robots.txt file:

    ´╗┐´╗┐User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/

    If anyone knows how I can solve this great mystery I would greatly appreciate it.

    Did you figure this out? I have the exact same issue with my website and have no idea why.

    Yes I did...
    Turns out it was the WPtouch plugin.

    I noticed that it all started after I installed the plugin. After I uninstalled it and deleted the files off my server everything went back to normal.
