Did you know Google ranks and prefers sites with HTTPS over their traditional counterparts with simple HTTP?
HTTPS simply adds a security layer or certificate to your website so your consumers and customers are protected from potential miss use of their valuable data such as name, email, address or credit card details.
Soon you will see a warning when you visit websites that are not protected by HTTPS. Protecting a website using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) does not cost a lot but it can be time consuming based on how big your site is. So that’s why we have created a complete visual checklist to move from HTTP to HTTPS keeping SEO in mind.
