4 important reasons to move your WordPress website to HTTPS:
1. SECURITY—SSL protects your website’s data and visitors. It encrypts data transferred over the web, like form submissions and credit card transactions.
2. SEO—Google says it’s past time to move your sites over to HTTPS. They are now giving an SEO ranking boost to secure sites. Simply put, you’ll rank better in SEO with HTTPS.
3. ECOMMERCE—If you’re taking any payments from your website, SSL is non-negotiable. SSL is an absolute must for all ecommerce and membership websites.
4. AFFORDABILITY—In the past, SSL certificates could get expensive, but the rapidly-transforming web landscape has made switching to SSL practical and affordable.
What is HTTPS and how does it work?
HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is an internet communication protocol that protects the integrity and confidentiality of your users’ data between the user’s computer and the site.
For example, when a user enters data into a form on your site in order to subscribe to updates or purchase a product, HTTPS protects that user’s personal information between the user and the site. Users expect a secure online experience when providing data via a website. We encourage you to adopt HTTPS in order to protect your users’ connection to your website.
Data sent using HTTPS is secured via Transport Layer Security protocol (TLS), which provides three key layers of protection:
Encryption—encrypting the exchanged data to keep it secure from eavesdroppers. That means that while the user is browsing a website, nobody can “listen” to their conversations, track their activities across multiple pages, or steal their information.
Data integrity—data cannot be modified or corrupted during transfer, intentionally or otherwise, without being detected.
Authentication—proves that your users communicate with the intended website. It protects against man-in-the-middle attacks and builds user trust, which translates into other business benefits.
Official news on crawling and indexing sites for the Google index
Indexing HTTPS pages by default
Thursday, December 17, 2015
For Google, user security has always been a top priority. Over the years, they’ve worked hard to promote a more secure web and to provide a better browsing experience for users. Gmail, Google search, and YouTube have had secure connections for some time, and they also started giving a slight ranking boost to HTTPS URLs in search results last year. Browsing the web should be a private experience between the user and the website, and must not be subject to eavesdropping, man-in-the-middle attacks, or data modification. This is why Google has been strongly promoting HTTPS everywhere.
As a natural continuation of this, today Google announce that they we’re adjusting their indexing system to look for more HTTPS pages. Specifically, they’ll start crawling HTTPS equivalents of HTTP pages, even when the former are not linked to from any page. When two URLs from the same domain appear to have the same content but are served over different protocol schemes, they’ll typically choose to index the HTTPS URL if:
- It doesn’t contain insecure dependencies.
- It isn’t blocked from crawling by robots.txt.
- It doesn’t redirect users to or through an insecure HTTP page.
- It doesn’t have a rel=”canonical” link to the HTTP page.
- It doesn’t contain a noindex robots meta tag.
- It doesn’t have on-host outlinks to HTTP URLs.
- The sitemaps lists the HTTPS URL, or doesn’t list the HTTP version of the URL
- The server has a valid TLS certificate.
Although Googles systems prefer the HTTPS version by default, we also make this clearer for other search engines by redirecting your HTTP site to your HTTPS version and by implementing the HSTS header on our server.
Googles excited about taking another step forward in making the web more secure. By showing users HTTPS pages in our search results, we’re hoping to decrease the risk for users to browse a website over an insecure connection and making themselves vulnerable to content injection attacks.
