Should Rel-canonical Also Include Protocol (http/https)?
I'm migrating my website from http to https (although it will still support access via http)
Currently all of my pages have accurate rel-canonical meta tags set in the HTML, but obviously they all point to the canonical http:// url.
Should I now be updating those to https:// too, or is it ok to leave them as http?
I'm wondering whether Google will penalise me, or start detecting duplicate content, if I start mixing them
Yes Google sees http and https as different sites so you should update them.
A redirect on the server might be sufficient in the short term but personally I would be looking to update the pages as soon as you can.
