The HTTP version of the site should not be deleted, Google said


In his official profile on Twitter, Google employee John Mueller issued a warning to all site owners that if you remove the HTTP version of the site, it will lead to the inevitable removal of all other versions from the search index. Therefore, HTTP is not recommended for webmasters to avoid removing other versions such as HTTPS , www, non-www.

Mueller added that webmasters need to stop using the URL removal tool for canonicalization. There are suggestions that Mueller's message may have something to do with the LinkedIn situation. It became known that the main domain of the social network fell out of the Google index.
