HTTPS

I moved my site to HTTPS in november, but it still shows up in the google search console as HTTP. I read somewhere that I would have to add it as a separate site, but I am forcing HTTPS so all URLs get redirected through HTTPS. So do I have to add it as a separate site?

But does it make a difference if I am forcing HTTPS? I added the HTTPS version of my site as a separate property.

Ok, I removed the sitemap under http and added it under https. I hope it dosen't remove the URLs indexed using the site map under http.

Google does not make this very clear. My understanding is that you just create a new "preoperty" of the https site, at which point you can delete http.

Google's crawling and indexing of a site, or any SEO advantage, is not likely to depend on what you have in Search Console or its sitemaps.

I 3 additional properties. One for non www http, one for non www https, and one for www https. I already have a www http one. I deleted the sitemap from the www http property and I am now submitting it under the www https one.

doesn't matter if you have 2 site properties for http and https as the http one when bot crawls will get your http to https 301 redirect anyway

Redirect all your sites to the new URL, it will take time before Google figures this by itself so you might want to submit your xml sitemap again.
