Is Your Website Secure? If Not it Will Hurt Your SEO and Search Rankings

Is your business website secure? Has it adopted HTTPS encryption?

As of July, if you use Chrome, you might’ve noticed some sites are being marked as “not secure”. That’s because they still have the HTTP non-secure designation.

Having the SSL certificate shows Google (and potential visitors) that your site is trustworthy:

  1. Provides encryption of visitors’ sensitive information
  2. Provides authentication of the site and your business behind it
  3. Boosts your brand

Having the HTTPS encryption might even give you a boost in the search engine rankings – because Google sees you as safe. If your site is still listed under the HTTP designation, you’re probably losing traffic, new prospects, and possibly sales.
