Upgrade Your Website To HTTPS
When your site is using HTTP to serve it’s pages, the traffic it sends is not encrypted, which means that other people can snoop on the information going back and forth from the user to your server. You may think encryption is only required for bank websites and email services, but many believe that encryption needs to be used much more widely on the web.
Google state that they care a lot about security. At Google I/O 2014, in a talk called HTTPS Everywhere, they advocated that every website should implement HTTPS encrypted connections. In the modern era, there are many “attackers” on the internet, attempting to gather as much information about people as they can. Google have stated that they will start preferring websites with HTTPS in their rankings, in an attempt to improve the security of the wider web.
