SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is an important factor in search engine ranking as well as offering security to your website visitors.
With Google now using SSL as a ranking factor (websites with SSL list higher in search results than similar sites without), it not only helps you secure your website and protect your clients’ details but may also help your website gain an advantage over rivals and rise higher in organic search results on Google.
What is an SSL Cert?
An SSL Certificate is a text file with encrypted data that you install on your server so that you can secure/encrypt sensitive communications between your site and your customers.
How do you install one?
Depending on the hosting platform you use for your website it can be an easy task or a little more tricky if using a virtual server for example.
