Should I Switch My WordPress Website to HTTPS?

Google has recently announced that whether or not a website is using HTTPS (HTTP over TLS) will be a ranking signal as we go forward. Right now it's not so important for ranking however it will progressively become more important in the coming years. Thus, the onus is on website owners to start making the move right now towards HTTPS.

Google has recently announced that whether or not a website is using HTTPS (HTTP over TLS) will be a ranking signal as we go forward. Right now it’s not so important for ranking however it will progressively become more important in the coming years. Thus, the onus is on website owners to start making the move right now towards HTTPS.

HTTPS is not the easiest of topics and so many have legitimately struggled to understand Google’s latest move. However my good friend Robert at WP WhiteSecurity has written an awesome primer about HTTPS and why this is a good move by Google. It helped me understand very clearly why we need to start implementing HTTPS on all our websites, and I hope it will be very helpful to you too.

Any comments on HTTPS? Have you started implementing it on your websites yet?

  1. I would actually want to know if there is any price comparison on SSL/TLS certificate providers, and also what sets them apart. I looked in to this a while ago, and the prices was everything from $10/m to 399$/m. When searching around, i was only left with more questions than answers.
