Its time to secure your WordPress website with HTTPS

Over the couple of years, Google has progressively stressed the importance of HTTPS encryption for websites. It has marked certain HTTP pages as “not secure” if they contain data input fields for things such as passwords, personal details or credit card information.

Domain name without HTTPS status can also influence a website’s search engine ranking. With the release of Google Chrome 68, Google has announced that all HTTP pages will be marked as “not secure” in an effort to phase out the older, less secure web protocol.

As this helped to make the internet a safer place, but it has also created some issues for site owners who have not encrypted their domain yet with HTTPS. Google Chrome handles the majority of browser traffic worldwide, and websites that show up as “not secure” face a probably huge dip in traffic.


Check your encryption Status

To check if your site is already HTTPS-encrypted, visit your domain using “https://” in the URL. If you see a green padlock next to the “https://” your site is encrypting its traffic and you are safe to go:

If you see something else, you have to take action before Chrome 68 is released. Because it may lead to some of the negative results e.g might low your website ranking. The best thing is that securing your site with HTTPS is a easy process. HTTPS encryption is done through SSL (Server Security Layer) certificate, which helps authenticate websites and ensures that hackers cannot see or intercept data of your users who share on your website.

To add https encryption with SSL certification to a WordPress website, site owners need to purchase an SSL certificate. Once the certification has been purchased, it will need to be installed on the server where your website is hosted.

With SSL certification and switching over to HTTPS, you will not only securing yourself on the web but also protecting your potential users/customers from crucial information hacks.

How does Google search work ?

Search Engine works as answering machine. When a person perform an online search, search engine does two things: firstly, it returns only those results that are useful and relevant to searcher’s query and second, it ranks those results according to the popularity of the websites serving the information. The information given by search engine may be images, mix of web pages and other type of data and files. search engine follow some important seo rule for page ranking of large no of web sites.

Search engine basically operates three steps:

(1).Crawling

(2).Indexing

(3).Searching

(1) Crawling:

A web crawler started with the list of URLs for visit. When the crawler visit these URLs, it identifies all the hyperlinks in the page and add them to the list of URLs for visit, it is known as crawl frontier.

(2) Indexing:

is basically taking thing in a word order. Suppose a document on web contain name A B, and in the document A B appears next to each other. whenever a visitor search such document, Google indexing will search web-pages that contain words A and B. indexing will find most relevant documents or files that contain word A B on the page or may be back links in anchor text pointing to that document. The main purpose of indexing is to optimize performance and speed in finding relevant documents for search query.

(3) Searching:

Once the document selection done, next is, how to rank those documents. We use PR and two hundred other factors for ranking. Like document A B, may be this document is popular, or very authoritative, or it having more back-links on web having lot of repetition. So Google try to balance all two hundred ranking signals to find most relevant document or best match for the query. And then it display all the related information, keywords, contact details and link associated with that query.

Does Google have my original content?

Proving that you are the original writer of a certain article that is already published on another website is somewhat difficult. But now Google has introduce a different way to claim your authorship. Google team works very hard to distinguish and identify original articles from those that are ripped off other sites.

Google has ability to crawl on certain or rather finite number of pages at particular time frame. If anyone copy your article or you are the original writer of that article, you can do Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice. So, they has penalties for it if they are lying and stuff disappears off from the other site. So, if someone copied you do always a DMCA notice.

Shared copy of your DMCA take down notice will makes the complaint public, which is a best way to expose the content thieves. Sometime the content are directly copied from your site and sometime content is slightly modified, but at last the final result clearly is based on your original work. But this nature is not always harmful for your site if you want that your original content show only on your site, then you should have removed the duplicate content.
