This is the latest news from Google on security and safety on the Internet

HTTPS as a ranking signal security symbol

Security is a top priority for Google. We invest a lot in making sure that our services use industry-leading security, like strong HTTPS encryption by default. That means that people using Search, Gmail and Drive, for example, automatically have a secure connection to Google.

Beyond our own stuff, we’re also working to make the Internet safer more broadly. A big part of that is making sure that websites people access from Google are secure. For instance, we have created resources to help webmasters prevent and fix security breaches on their sites.

The Main Reasons to Listen to Google

  1. They are the most used search engine with 85 to 90% market share.

  3. Yes all Shopping Cart websites definitely need to be HTTPS (have a SSL certificate installed)

We recommend that we all heed Google and add SSL Certificate to our websites, to make your site HTTPS. That is to have HTTPS://domain.com.au rather than the standard HTTP://domain.com.au
