doesn’t contain insecure dependencies.
isn’t blocked from crawling by robots.txt.
doesn’t redirect users to or through an insecure HTTP page.
doesn’t have a rel=”canonical” link to the HTTP page.
doesn’t contain a noindex robots meta tag.
doesn’t have on-host outlinks to HTTP URLs.
The sitemaps lists the HTTPS URL, or doesn’t list the HTTP version of the URL.
