It’s 2017 and if you didn’t switch to a secure SSL connection yet, it’s definitely time to do so. This has been on my to-do list for a while already and now that I know how easy it is, I definitely should have done it before!
Every site should definitely make use of a secure connection, even if you only have a static website or blog. Besides other advantages, there’s a simple thing that should be enough of a motivation for you to go SSL: Google will start to penalize websites in their search results that are not using a secure SSL connection. Convinced?
