Effective July 2018: Website Security Will Become a "Must-Have"
Over the last few months, search engines have increasingly encouraged the use of SSL Certificates to ensure a safe connection when users visit your Website. And now, starting in July, Google Chrome will make it clear any Websites that are missing these certificates as "Not Secure."
Many businesses have already made the change, according to Google:
- Over 68% of Chrome traffic on both Android and Windows is now protected
- Over 78% of Chrome traffic on both Chrome OS and Mac is now protected
If you have not already implemented an SSL Certificate on your Website, you may be running the risk of scaring away Website visitors, and even plummeting in search rankings.
