Google is telling your users that your site is NOT safe!
If you’re driving traffic to your site the last thing you want is them seeing a warning that says your website is not secure.
And, from July 2018 Google Chrome will show all sites without an SSL certificate a WARNING: “not secure” in the browser address bar (see above).
A recent study found that about 50% of Aussie’s use Google Chrome. Yes, 50%! So if your site isn’t secure then it’s something that you need to get DONE.
If your site is already secure then great work, you’re all over it!
But, if you’re scratching your head with no idea about any of this then that’s okay. Just follow these steps below.

Enter in your web address and vualá. If you don’t see all green like above, you’ve just added to your already long to-do list.

Where to from here?
Now that you want to sort this out, the best way to obtain an SSL certificate is from your web hosting provider.
To quickly sum up, activating an SSL certificate for your site has many benefits including boosted rankings and increased customer conversions.
