Google Now Requires Valid SSL Certificate

Posted on // Best Practices, Tips and Tricks

Over the past year, we've seen Google pushing SSL in different ways, including giving increased search ranking to sites that are secure

Google has announced that effective October 2017, Chrome will report "this site is insecure" for any site without a proper/valid SSL certificate installed.  Until this push by Google, SSL was really only installed for e-commerce sites; now it is basically required for all websites.
