SSL now a ranking criteria on Google

Google has recently announced that they have started and will continue to rank sites that use SSL throughout the site higher than sites that don’t.  Aside from the obvious security reasons for implementing SSL on pages with protected data, this raises a strong argument for implementing SSL or increasing your use of SSL if you don’t already use it on all pages of your site.

We are recommending that all of our clients move forward with a full implementation of SSL.  If you are unsure what SSL is or how you would go about implementing it on your site, feel free to reach out to us at 866-313-0106 to discuss your options.
