SSL

As of October 1 2017, Google (as de facto rulers of the
internet) have decided to fully implement the most
dangerous warnings about un-protected websites.

Up to now they’ve only been toying with us, like a cat
fiddles with a mouse until he’s ready to bite off its
head and eat it whole.

You can’t say you weren’t warned.

Google has been talking about this for months, testing the notices and site warnings and bragging how much this will improve security.

Remember: when somebody as big and as powerful as Google tells you “this is for your own good…This is to protect you..”

It is time to sit up and pay close attention!

The SSL GOOGLE MASSACRE

Not 1 out of 100 local small businesses even knows this Google SSL requirement is coming and the few that do have NO CLUE what to do about.

Google will be massively punishing websites lacking SSL certificates.

“NOT SECURE!”, Now THAT’S SCARY!

Google, never known for subtlety, keeps ramping up the warnings.

Talk about KILLING a business!…This is the massacre we’re talking about.

Tons of local businesses will get hit with the worst of these and not be prepared.

Starting in October of this year, the Google Chrome browser has started frightening website viewers by showing them the above in their address bar on pages with any forms if you don’t have a secure (SSL/HTTPS) website.

Over the last couple of weeks many local businesses have already received an email that looks like the following, letting them know how serious Google is about this:

The Majority of Web Visitors will see this
ON YOUR Site…
unless you do something.

So, Why Worry?

Because Google Chrome is the world’s most popular browser so about half your web traffic (and probably more) is from visitors that use the Chrome browser (desktop or mobile)…and that percentage is only going UP. Firefox is following suit with this protection warning.

AND the average web user has no idea this is a big push by Google to make the web a safer place, to reduce information theft and curtail some hacking activity.

Visitors are simply going to think it’s YOUR website that is “insecure.”

…and many will avoid it like the plague.

BUT, take heart, there is a solution and we can help!

Is This Google Massacre INEVITABLE?

Yes, its a speeding train headed right for all the local business websites.

Google initially decided to “soft launch” their changes. Think of it as the “carrot” approach.

BUT, with the carrot approach not working like Google would like, now they’re reaching for the stick.

…eventually all HTTP pages will be marked as non-secure with a red warning triangle NO ONE can miss.
