Today Dave and Ryan are talking about the new harmonious relationship between SEO and Security. Google announces HTTPS as a ranking signal and we talk about what it means for your ranking in 2015.
In short Google is saying you should have an SSL or secure socket layer on your site, and it will help give you an SEO boost, that is great because it gives you a security boost as well.
Too many times Security (the proverbial "redheaded step child") gets ignored due to the inconvenience of it. Finally getting some love from Google, I feel Special! :)
