make entire site SSL, what mistakes could occur

Hi, I have an e-commerce site. With Google's new advice to take your whole site to SSL, I thought I would do that, especially as we have a new responsive site coming online in a few months.

I have this article: https://moz.com/blog/seo-tips-https-ssl and I figured the first step would be a redirect on the htaccess file.

But I wondered if there is some type of scourer that would look at the website after that is done, and tell us where all the errors are?

For instance,  where there is an explicit link to http://www...., or embedded things that link to external websites to load an image such as facebook or other tracking bits.  I know that if one of them is not https secure, the browser will bring up a scary warning to the user, and I want to avoid that at all costs.

Make sure 3rd party URLs, say for tracking, are https.

Now I realize, I need something to look at my site and the internet, to find http anomalies.
