  • SSL Encryption Required for Entire Site - All internet sites not just e-commerce

    It looks like things are plugging along - with a not so subtle push by Google's search results algorithm to require all pages on all websites to support HTTPS encryption. Interested in the community's thoughts on this and how soon is too soon to flip the switch. along with what would be the best practices way to change for only encrypting the checkout/login process vs all pages for all site visitors.

    Google is obviously clueless as to how much of a resource hog this is...

      While we agree this is the direction things are heading, thus far Google's promise of an SEO signal is a red herring.

      While you can achieve this fairly easily with Miva today, I'd caution the rush to action.

      For what it's worth were writing a tutorial on how to change your settings to make this happen.

        Rick, where is the tutorial to make site all SSL? We've heard several reports this *may* have had a positive impact on SEO and may want to switch over.

          Here is a tutorial which walks you thought the process of making your site secure

          https://www.netblazon.com/blog/migra...miva-site-ssl/

          A couple things to watch out for:

          1. Make sure you update your canonical tags to be https
          2. Verify in your robots.txt file and your head tag that you are not blocking https pages from being indexed
