The Importance of Having a Secure Socket Layer

Is SSL important for my Google rankings?

Google has announced that they will soon flag every site with a warning that doesn't have an SSL installed

  • This includes sites that don't ask for credit card information or personal contact information
  • Sites without SSL's have lower Google rankings, decreasing the chance of people visiting your site
  • Contact i4 Solutions for help with installing an SSL

What is an SSL?

  • A Secure Socket Layer encrypts data that travels through the internet, making it difficult for hackers to steal credit card numbers, personal information, access your root directory, or copy coding that runs through the site.
