Install SSL certificate and verify
SSL Certificates were once the preserve of ecommerce sites and corporates handling sensitive client data – not so today. For any site to be taken seriously and to have credible ranking in Google the trusty padlock has to be there in the address window closely followed by the https:// prefix.
An SSL certificate :
- Encrypts and secures traffic to and from your website
- Prevents phising
- Buys in user confidence
- Improves your Google ranking
As part of the WordPress security check the validity of the certificate is checked, access errors and mixed content identified and fixed.
