> If anyone changes their google ad word landing page URL, it wipes the

> changing the scheme (HTTP -> HTTPS) will wipe their ranking just the same
> as changing the domain or path.
> Has anyone come across this before, and know if google count the scheme in
> any adword changes?  I can't find any sites or google documentation on the
> subject.
> This is a business complication to moving a company to HTTPS everywhere,
> they simply wish to know if they need to prepare for ad word ranking being
> wiped upon scheme changes.
> Thanks for any advice,
