I have a quite painful issue with Chrome only (for now).
Here’s the situation: for years we had both http and https version of our website crawled by Google, which is obviously bad for SEO. For a few months now, we’ve been cleaning everything, making our https version disappear from Google before making a full and clean switch to https. So we still have both versions, but for now our https version automatically is redirected server-side back to http, in order for Google to empty its entries.
The problem is, now most of the time (not always), Chrome tries by default to open the https version of our site when you visit it, gets redirected to http, but then tries again to redirect to https, generating in the end a “too many redirects” error and sending the visitor into a white page.
So I don’t know what to do to prevent Chrome to automatically redirect to https. I removed the server-side redirection but I need it for the SEO cleaning task. Is there an option in Cloudflare I’m not aware of? Or do I just have to quickly finish our SEO tasks to switch as soon as possible to full https? I need the https version for a subdomain and a subfolder, but not the whole site.
I saw this topic, but I need the https version for part of our website, I just need to redirect the rest from https to http if https is called, so that I can remove the https version from Google index. I don’t know if I can achieve that, of if I will anyway end up with a redirection loop because of Chrome behaviour.
