    Google is Pushing SSL Encryption for ALL Websites

    Just when you think that Google may be settling down and getting out of their insanity mode, now they are pushing SSL encryption for all websites and have declared it a ranking factor.

    Google Says Website Encryption – Or Lack Thereof – Will Now Influence Search Rankings | TechCrunch

    Here is their video on the topic. These eggheads want to see all communications secured with 2048 bit military grade encryption.



    It looks like a fix for a problem that doesn't really exist. This is not always easy to implement on sites not designed to use SSL.

    I'm late to read this interesting article and I already bookmarked it as my reference in the changes of the behavior in search engine.

    Anyone who jumps on this and converts their website is a fool. Converting a site could have a negative impact on rankings due to the way Google handles 301 redirect these days.

    Encryption Is Now a Ranking Factor With Google

    This is easily the worst idea I have ever seen from Google.

    If I am logged-in to a financial account site, then I want my data transfer encrypted, but I am not concerned about having my search terms snooped on when searching for videos on YouTube etc. Yep, seems like a bad idea for most websites.
