Don’t Let Google Catch You SSLeeping with a Non-Secure Website!
As if it wasn’t bad enough that Google has been downranking unencrypted sites since 2015, they’ve also announced that by July 2018, Chrome will start marking ALL HTTP sites as ‘Not Secure’!
It’s true. Google will say your site is insecure and warn users, if you don’t migrate your website before July. As it stands currently, Chrome displays an information icon in the search bar, but come July your website visitors using Chrome will now see an additional warning icon with the text “Not Secure”.
It’s advisable to migrate your site to HTTPS. We’re ready when you are!

The Loganix team flawlessly managed our SSL Migration and made sure our website and SEO were not affected in the process.
My SSL Certificate had expired, and I was lost! I sent a quick message to the Loganix team begging for help, and I received an even quicker response. My SSL Certificate was updated and re-installed onto my site less than 24 hours later. A huge thanks to the Loganix team for the excellent communication and solving my problem in no time at all. A disaster was averted for sure!
Times are changing and there are endless items and improvements that need to be made for a website to stay sharp. Sometimes it can be hard to hand pick which items need to be implemented. What I love about Adam and his team at Loganix is that they are always real with me about when something needs to be done and the positives and consequences that will follow. They will tell me when something is unnecessary or if there is a better use of our money.
We don’t collect credit card information over the internet so it wasn’t a priority before. But the time finally came when Google announced that NOT having a secure , https website would actually start to hurt SEO efforts significantly. As always, Adam’s team was on it and we stayed ahead of the learning curve to make these changes and do an SSL migration. The team is very well-rounded and made sure every possible problem was addressed in a very proactive manner. We migrated earlier while our competitors didn’t, and it feels great knowing and seeing that advantage in our SEO KPIs.
Sites not running WordPress will need to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, you can reach us here to discuss your situation and if we’ll be able to assist in your migration.
So, What Could Go Wrong with a HTTPS Migration?
Oh, so much. An improper HTTP to HTTPS migration comes with side effects that include permanent loss of data, broken mapping and content improperly tagged as deceptive or dangerous and rendered inaccessible by web browsers. An improper SSL migration can be devastating for business owners, resulting in having websites penalized for months on end, and attempting to understand the errors in the process. Don’t become another statistic. Avoid disasters like these…
|Errors We’ve Seen in Migrations||The Effects on the Sites|
|Duplicate versions of the site||http + https would both resolve separately, causing confusion with indexation and splitting link authority!|
|Incorrect canonical tags||Sites loaded the https version but pointed Google and other search bots to the http version, causing crawling issues and a hit to rankings.|
|Incorrect redirects were being used to move traffic to the secure (https) version of site||302 and 307 'temporary' redirects were being used instead of proper ‘permanent’ redirects (301s), destroying rankings and preventing link authority from passing|
|Servers not optimized to use HTTPS||Causing an increase in pagespeed and downfall in overall website performance|
A flawless HTTPS migration can be hard to pull off. As you can see by the charts above, problems can be numerous. With the Loganix Team, and the multi-layer process we’ve created, you don’t need to worry about becoming one of the statistics.
Can Migrating Not Just Save Results, but Improve Them?
Yes, a migration has the potential to deliver more “positive results” in terms of relevancy, improve overall page visibility and your top 10 search engine rankings…
With greater rankings and visibility, comes more website visitors, leads, and revenue. And that’s more profit for your business…
A Secure HTTPS Website Will Also…
Encrypt the connection
Protect customer information submitted through your website and sensitive data like usernames and passwords. This is important as it may be a defense against liability after hacking attempts.
Be required for online payments
If you have an online business and you accept payments online, your site must meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance. You’ll require a SSL with an encryption of 128-bit. Without a certificate that meets these standards, your site may violate compliance with the PCI standard (a serious legal liability) if you try to take credit card payments.
Offer added brand power
Provide your customers with an additional level of assurance that their information will be safe. Display branded icons such as site seals and other images that show your customers you use well-trusted encryption.
Improve customer trust
Create trust between your potential customers and your business by providing greater security of all sensitive information passed through your website.
If you have a new website, then it’s a good idea to implement SSL/HTTPS right from the start, but an SSL Migration can be done at any time.
