Security Warning!

    Hubpages changing urls has turned out to be not so good a thing. I am now seeing a big SECURITY WARNING and the screen refuses to allow me to move further on our past urls which happen to still be sprinkled all over the web (especially on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter etc).

    New url: https://hubpages.com/health/tips-for-li … e-syndrome

    Old url which was supposed to redirect to the new url:  https://ladylorelei.hubpages.com/hub/ti … e-syndrome

    This is the exact message I receive:

    Your connection is not secure
    The owner of ladylorelei.hubpages.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

      You get an even worse message on Google Chrome. It says that attackers might be trying to steal your information! Definitely something for the site team to take a look at.

        I saw today a huge virus warning on Google. Terrible. Checked my computer and it was clean.

      Thanks Lorelei for letting us know. Had trouble with this before, but hoped it was all resolved.

      Hello Lorelei Cohen, The link you are referring to is a HubPages subdomain link. HubPages has never supported nor disseminated https links on subdomain urls. All links were http when we had subdomains and those redirect properly. This issue only affects https subdomain links of which there should be very few.

        So, what would cause this, and what can we do about it? Every one of mine that I have checked seem to be HTTPS

          The https links I'm referring to are old subdomain links for individual articles. HubPages no longer has subdomains. All articles on HubPages are on hubpages.com so the URL's will not contain your HubPages account information.

    So when we are de-indexting articles will we need to put both the http and https settings for each previous url in Google and Bing deindex?
