    I am fairly sure you do not need to worry about hyphenated urls. I am almost 100% certain that refers to domain names not urls. The length of our urls is totally within our control. I would not take everything produced by moz as gospel, they have recently been debunked for saying outbound links had value by a complete denial from google.

    I think that https is still currently way down the rankings factor that this really won't make much difference if you have the rest of your SEO basics in order.

    I'm still in the 'watch and wait' mind frame - it will have to come, even Rich knows that from what he has said, but now is not the time, and lets face it once every site is https - its back to square one!

    I am not convinced on the ranking factor being much if anything.

    By far the bigger consequence would be the red cross in the browser bar, this would certainly put customers off purchasing (it would me)

    I would like to think that making a big change like that Google would give notice and a date ahead of time and then steps could be put in place.

    Yes - now this is the real clincher - but surely they could only put the cross in chrome, I don't think they can show it in IE or safari.

    Apparently Mozilla are in the same discussion group and will also, if agreed, be implementing this. So again, if agreed, I would expect IE and Safari to follow the leaders.

    Maybe Bluepark should make this a option, pass the cost on to the customers (us), and then we can see how we feel, win win all round then, and if we do see an increase in sales, then Bluepark and its customers will have all the answers.

    Not sure about only Chrome, I would hate to loose all the Chrome users.

    Oh the irony! This site claims that over 90% don't get their https implementation correct! They obviously are including themselves in that I hope!

    My browser (Firefox) showed their green padlock with a great big yellow warning triangle slapped on top!

    Apparently Firefox blocked all the unsecured content on their site! So perhaps this is happening quicker than we expected, ie now.

    Great post Geoff .... I've moved my wife's site from a free WIX offering to CoreCommerce and now onto Bluepark in the last 2 years ... that' £0 to £47.99 a month .... When you aren't John Lewis, those sort of things do hurt a bit

    Think this may have changed because there is a recent Shopify blog article that says

    "we’ve issued and set up SSL certificates for every Shopify store. And because we feel this is important, we did it at no additional cost to existing or future Shopify merchants."

    Yes there was. It was announced just over a week ago. I'm in the process of putting a site together for someone else using shopify so I was sent an email about it.

    May or may not be a coincidence but we have just been knocked of the number 1 spot on one of our major keywords after about three years of being there by an https site.

    I was speaking to a friend of mine who runs a very successful SEO and marketing business. According to him, this is a big deal and he is currently not willing to work on sites that are not completely https

    Personally I have seen a small drop off in sales in the last couple of weeks, compared to previous years. Whether that has anything to do with it I don't know and it might just be a little blip. However, I find this quite concerning that this change is not being implemented when other platforms appear to be doing so.

    The pressure is growing - I just went to log in to my Barclays account and was met with this message:

    "How to make sure sites are safeYou should always check if a website is secure before you enter your account or card details. To do this, look for ‘https’ at the start of the website address and the padlock or unbroken key icon."

    We all know that a good percentage of online shoppers do not read the text we write for them, so I can only hope that my potential customers who also bank online with Barclays fall into the non reader group.Although the Barclays message may really only refer to the cart etc., the average Joe public will see "look for ‘https’ at the start of the website address" and think it means the complete site.

    I have to agree that this is getting quite serious now. Would be good if BP could offer an option to 'upgrade' to full HTTPS if they were unable to accept the cost within the existing packages.

    I agree - we would really like to see this, and soon - ignoring any potential SEO benefits, my concern is more and more of our competitors have switched to full HTTPS and we are becoming the odd one out so from a marketing point of view, it's a frustrating position to be in.

    I like it that you get a green padlock or https in the browser bar, it does seem to make me feel safer.
