    I decided to move my website to HTTPS one month ago, not only because HTTPS is now a ranking signal for GOOGLE.
    Migrate your website to HTTPS will also:

    • Build customer confidence & trust
    • Increase conversions on contact/payment forms
    • Protect all sensitive data passing through your site

    I realize that correct HTTPS implementation is not so easy and requires several actions to make your Symbiostock website more secure and SEO friendly.
    That’s why I wrote a post with a step-by-step tutorial to help you with this task :



    Did you guys noticed search rank boost after adding HTTPS? That might be the only motivation to me taking into consideration the extra work involved.

    Hi Songquan,

    I noticed positive moves on some keywords but it’s too early to say that’s related to HTTPS migration…


    Thank you for your info.

    I may hold on the move for now. My site is HUGE. That requires serious decision.

    Keep me posted with any noticed impacts from SSL. That is surely something interesting.


    Thanks George.

    I recall bluehost sales people once try to persuade me to buy it. I need some research and study before make the move.

    Appreciate you and Chris’ useful info.

    I actually received a warning eMail from Google saying that with the latest version of Chrome pages where login information could be collected (Google listed 2 of my regular Symbiostock photo pages as examples) will be marked as ‘unsafe’ if https isn’t enforced. So I think it’s a good idea to serve all your pages via https. It took me only a couple of minutes to activate a ‘force https on all pages’  but I had https for the checkout pages installed already anyway.
