Google Announces HTTPS as a Ranking Signal for SEO
It’s official, Google openly “encourage(s) all website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone safe on the web.”
On Wednesday, August 06, 2014 – Google announced HTTPS as a ranking signal for SEO. If you’re not familiar, Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is a communications protocol for secure communication, protecting the connection to the website through authentication and encryption. Utilizing HTTPS to secure all traffic on your website ensures your site visitors that their information, both what they consume and what they submit, is secured from prying eyes as the data travels across the internet.
For the most part, you do not have control over where your data travels in between your web servers and your visitors browsers, but you do have control over how that data is secured. Encrypting your traffic prevents hackers, governments, security agencies, ISPs and anyone else who might try to view your data from doing so. It also helps protect your site from fraud and helps protect your visitors’ identities and reputation.
