Bot crawling http and https

When I enable cloudflare, SEMrush thinks that http and https are separate pages.

I noticed that there are multiple 301 GET requests, such as:

Code: - - [20/May/2019:11:35:11 -0500] “GET / HTTP/1.0” 301 234 “-” “Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; SemrushBot-SA/0.97; +”

which explains why the SEMrush bot crawls both HTTP and HTTPS versions of your site.

Hi @webwizard,

From my experience, I can tell you that the SEMrush crawler is not a good fit for this kind of reference.

Anyway, if it’s okay to serve the site only through HTTPS, solving this problem is an easy task: just enable the Always use HTTPS option in the Crypto tab of your Dashboard. This will cause all HTTP requests to receive a 301 redirect to their respective HTTPS destinations.

Please let me know if you need any further help.
