Why is Google penalizing your site?
In an effort to help users browse the web safely browsers like Google Chrome have started to display warnings for sites that do not have SSL certificates.
What does an SSL Certificate do? A very simple explanation is that it will allow your website to connect through https as opposed to just http.
Why is this important to you?
The need for SSL has significantly increased and is essentially mandatory if you can’t afford the reputation of your website to become compromised. Additionally, if you have a contact form on any of your pages, it is highly advised you implement an SSL certificate on your website.
Having an SSL certificate will help future proof your website as well as:
- Protect sensitive contact form information
- Increase SEO ranking
- Provide user trust
- Improve analytics data
- Add a icon to your sites URL
