I go to websites across the world wide web and find that so many of them are insecure! Also known as Not Secure, which is helpfully announced in the address bar of many browsers. If you go to your own website and you see those words, or it starts with Http and not Https then that means you need to procure an SSL certificate for your site. Your host should have information on what that is and whether you qualify for it for free or need to pay a fee.
Note the little padlock next to my URL. That’s a good sign.
It’s important to make sure you take care of this little matter soon because it could be affecting your business, your SEO, the trust of those going to your site, etc. If you have no idea what I’m talking about get in touch and I’ll help you out!
Smart business owners have both a blog and a website. Often it’s combined in an easy-to-update WordPress website. I brand these for some of my clients and they love them. They have built-in SEO and can easily have a custom URL attached to them. The great thing about these sites is that it’s something the site owner themselves can update.
There’s a bit of a learning curve to get used to the interface on the “dashboard” of WordPress. But once you get the confidence in your own ability to update your website it will only help your business. That’s because search engines are always looking for new content to rank websites higher. In other words, if you have a WordPress website and blog, keep it updated and you will have a definite edge for business growth!
