Our team was fortunate enough to attend BrightEdge’s annual conference, Share14. The conference was held in the heart of San Francisco, and featured new product announcements as well as guest appearances by the likes of Microsoft, Google, Adidas, 3M, and many more. Share14 focused on two core themes: the continued importance of content, and the state of the mobile revolution.
ASEOHosting, a provider of premium SEO hosting, is releasing an advisory to address the concerns of clients and the wider online community regarding Google’s recent announcement that HTTPS and SSL certificates will be used as a ranking signal in its search engine results pages.
It should be made clear that Google’s announcement does not imply that the purchase of an SSL certificate is required to rank in the SERPS. However, in combination with many other ranking signals, a site’s use of SSL encryption is likely to give it an advantage relative to competitors who do not implement SSL.
