Google has announced that has begun to consider the HTTPS (safe connection) as a signal to consider in the ranking of the searches that is realised in their finder.

Its objective is that HTTPS in all the webpages settles with the purpose of to impel the security in Internet.

Google will add the HTTPS as signal in the ranking of the searchesAt the moment it indicates Google that the weight in the ranking in very small (around 1% of the queries), but which they have thought to increase it in the future.

It also gives to Google a series us of good practices to follow at the time of contracting certificate HTTPS:

  • To use certificates of key of 2,048 bits.
  • To use URL relative for the resources that lodge in the same safe domain.
  • To use URL relative of protocol for the rest of domains.

With this tool we can make a will our level of security and its configuration.

We will see what happens with this initiative. It can to be complicated them usuary and companies to have to contract and to install certificates SSL (especially if the page is complex), in addition to the annual increase of costs that supposes€¦
