As we know that recently google released HTTPS algorithm and there is some chatter about it that this is the part of google panda update. Yesterday “John Mueller” came out with Google webmaster handout and cleared the doubt.
See the main points below –
1 – The HTTPS algorithm is completely separate from google panda update and even from all other updates released by google.
2 – This algorithm is live and implement when a new domain indexed.
3 – This algorithm is not the part of side wide algorithm. If a site has HTTP and HTTPs both types of URL’s, HTTPS URLs will benefit not HTTP.
