Google is a big proponent of the “HTTPS everywhere” idea. Users of Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, and Google Drive automatically have an encrypted connection to Google.
Google also encourages webmasters to prevent and fix security breaches on their sites, and Google officially announced that HTTPS is used as a signal in their search ranking algorithm.
Enhanced data security is a good thing. That’s why we have decided to make our SEOprofiler web pages all-HTTPS, all the time, for everyone.
The first SEO tool with full HTTPS support
As of today, we have moved all SEOprofiler pages to HTTPS. This means that all public pages, all backend pages and all web-based customers reports will automatically have an encrypted connection.
If your own website also supports HTTPS, you can frame the web-based client reports in SEOprofiler on your own HTTPS website:
The HTTPS encryption on the SEOprofiler pages makes sure that information is secured via the ‘Transport Layer Security’ protocol (TLS), which provides three key layers of protection:
- Encryption: When you are browsing our website, nobody can ‘listen’ to your conversations, track your activities across multiple pages, or steal your information.
- Data integrity: Data cannot be modified or corrupted during transfer, intentionally or otherwise, without being detected.
- Authentication: HTTPS makes sure that you communicate with the intended website.
Google is serious about HTTPS
Although the influence of HTTPS as a Google ranking signal is still unclear, Google has made it clear that they find HTTPS extremely important:
SEOprofiler is 100% HTTPS
Whether you are an existing SEOprofiler user, or if you decide to become a new user today: all SEOprofiler pages will automatically have an encrypted connection. If you haven’t done it yet, try SEOprofiler now:
