In Google's new version of their web browser Chrome, called Chrome 68, any websites that do not run on the https platform will be marked as “not secure”. The only way to get around this is by getting an SSL certification. This is leading many people to question whether Google, and other web servers, prefer the https platform, and whether or not getting the required certifications is worth it. This could cause many companies to consider changing their online presence, which could potentially cost a lot of money.
- Changing websites from HTTP to HTTPS can affect search results.
- Google is concerned with internet safety with fraud on the rise and is working to better its product.
- More than half of websites are secure, though that leaves many that are not.
“Switching a website from HTTP to HTTPS the wrong way can heavily mess up your search rankings! There are many things that must be taken into consideration.”
