Google HTTPS Impacts on Local Search Engine Marketing Perth Rankings

Watch the Top SEO Pages video to find out more about securing your Search Engine Optimization Perth Rankings...

by Sean Drayton

Greetings All,

Will be keeping the content part of this post fairly short as the majority of the informative content resides within the attached video.

Righto, the main purpose of this post and video is to bring to your attention that Google is releasing another Google Algorithm update in October 2017 that will be focusing on providing more relevance and importance to websites that have the https protocol enabled on their website. The update will be more so targeted to Chrome browsers which fulfil the majority of all browsers on the internet.

Users who are using Chrome and come across a website with a web form will receive a notification that the website is not secure. Naturally, this notification will put visitors off using your website and will be unlikely to return. It is therefore in your best interests to upgrade to https to not only provide a better user experience, but to also secure your current rankings as https continues to to become a more prevelant ranking metric over time.

If you wish to read more on the subject, head on over to the very well trusted 'Search Engine Land' link provided below:

Ok, now that we have laid out the background of whats happening, what do you need to do to help secure those Search Engine Marketing Perth rankings that you already have. My recommendation is to contact your registrar / hosting provider and work with them to upgrade your website to https. Following the upgrade you will need to take a number of steps to maintain your existing rankings, as this upgrade does run the risk of losing all of your rankings if not managed correctly. Feel free to watch the above video where I will briefly touch on what needs to be completed from an SEO perspective once the https upgrade has been finalised.

In the video you may recall me stating that if you comment on this post or on our Youtube channel with questions, one of our Search Engine Optimisation Australia experts will be more than happy to advise or assist with recommending a safe upgrade path.
