After some consideration reading posts on here I figured a good basic list of resources would be good. Not sure if a mod will lock this so it can be updated at a later date, might be nice to stop the "what is this SEO" type posts but any other peeps using with GOOD tools feel free to chip in.

Mixed debate, personal favourite of mine, if nothing else have cool breadcrumbs under your listing.

Since moving my site from http to https, none of my individual posts are appearing in google. The home page itself is appearing, but nothing else. I have no idea what to do. Any ideas? It might also be worth noting that also transition to C Panel.
