Don’t have an SSL? These facts show that you’re pissing in the wind.

3 Letters. SSL. You need a secure website. HTTPS now makes up 99% of Organic search results on Google. Meaning all search results #1-#10 are sites that have an SSL Certificate. If you don’t have one, you are falling by the wayside. Even when we get down to result number #50 (page 5) the sites are 94% HTTPS. Simply put, Google is giving a heavy preference to sites that carry an SSL Certificate, after all Google is built to serve the searcher so offering secure results is a key part of their commitment to searchers. Especially after the Major Internet Security breaches this year. Secure sites are no longer just an option. Google has recently called SSL/HTTPS a “lightweight ranking signal”, the facts above support this too. Don’t for a second think HTTPS alone with get your ranking up but know that without it you’re just pissing in the wind.

Still not changing?

If you’ve just read that 99% of the top ten organic results have HTTPS & you are still not purchasing your SSL then I don’t know what to tell you. Buy your SSL here now. You can’t really enter the internet game in 2021 & be competitive without an SSL.

You might have noticed that Google’s Chrome Browser now warns visitors if your site isn’t secure. Wake up sort your website out.

The giants of search are working to avoid you. Join the future. Get an SSL & become HTTPS.
