HTTPS, Again – Should We Be Screaming About This?

Google's Site SSL Icon

This whole HTTPS and Google’s push to encrypt (or weaponize depending on your perspective) is back on people’s lips again. I’m a little late to the party of course, since I have been out of the country so many times in the last three months that blogging has been a distant thought. With all of this talk, I’m left to wonder if the uproar has any merit. You’ll remember, I’ve spoken about this before; actively discussing Dave Winer’s commonly cited reason why sites don’t need to move to SSL.

Making Sense Of Google’s HTTPS Ranking Signal, And What Matters

Does it make sense to move your blog to https? If you’re on the fence about this, you might be very confused. There seems to be a real war of words going on about this right now. Clearly, Google is trying to get publishers to move to the encrypted standard as evidenced by their recent blog post. But some are actually saying this move is about public relations, and not a ranking signal. As you might guess, I’ve been very interested in this topic given the full switch this blog has made. As someone who has blogged for a while and site owner, I can help you make sense of this.
