Google Says

"The Google Chrome Browser is now marking all HTTP pages as "not secure." Please consider updating your website and urls to use HTTPS." 

WHAT IS HTTPS?

HTTPS stands for “Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure”, which means that it is a secure version of the HTTP protocol that computers use to communicate over the Web (you probably recognize the “http://” that begins every website URL). This security comes from the use of SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), which encrypts the data being transferred from a user’s computer to the website they are accessing. Our help starts as low as $69.00 a one time fee.

You can easily see that a site is using HTTPS by looking in the address bar of your browser. Any site that uses HTTPS will display a padlock icon before the URL, and it will also usually include the text “https://” to show that the page being accessed is secure. This gives users the confidence that any information they enter on the site will not be visible to other users or malicious hackers while it is being transmitted to the server. Our help starts as low as $69.00 a one time fee.

HOW DOES THIS AFFECT A GOOGLE SEARCH FOR YOUR WEBSITE?

In order to motivate sites to implement this security, Google has started to use HTTPS as a ranking signal. This means that sites which use HTTPS will receive a small boost in their search rankings.  This means that if your site does not currently utilize HTTPS, it is a good idea to implement it as soon as possible in order to receive this benefit. Our help starts as low as $69.00 a one time fee.

HOW DO I GET HTTPS?
