Google rarely divulges any information about how you can get your site to rank higher in the search results. However, when they do, it definately turns some heads.
On Wednesday August 6th, 2014 Google announced “HTTPS as a ranking signal” in which they have introduced a push for a more secure internet and another marker to better ranking.
Using a secure website (or HTTPS) prevents unwanted listening to your passwords and sensitive data when you, or your customers are using your site. HTTPS is a function of your website provider and should be secured with a SSL Certificate for authenticity.
With recent cyber-attacks increasing in frequency and scope, it is ever more important to secure your website and login to protect from unwanted intruders. Enable your HTTPS, and get a SSL Certificate today!
