Now is the time to upgrade your site to HTTPS.
Google is cracking down on web security, and has started penalizing websites that are not SSL compliant. If your site does not have a Secure Socket Layer Certificate installed, Google is not only down-ranking your website in it’s search results, but they are now starting to display ‘INSECURE’ beside it in the latest release of Chrome.
Now is the time to upgrade your website to HTTPS. Not only will you avoid being penalized, but you will ensure you are found before your competitors’ because of your quick action and compliance. It’s essentially your chance to ‘jump ahead’ of your competition in search results — while everyone else is still figuring this out!
