At the end of October a new version of Google Chrome was released that clearly labels any website without an SSL Certificate as ‘non-secure’. This will be shown in the browser bar clearly to the online user.
This will effect a huge range of websites, particularly e-commerce sites or any that contain input fields, like password requests and contact forms. Studies indicate up to 84% of online shoppers will abandon their purchase once seeing that a site is not secure ( Source ). Having an SSL certificate gives your website the green padlock, reassuring customers that they are in a safe location to purchase goods and enter their details.
Not only do your customers prefer secure sites, but Google does too. With Google favouring secure sites, your search engine rankings are more likely improve and your conversion rates more likely to increase. It’s simple!

We are extremely delighted to announce the launch of EatWalkPorto ’s website. Within the travel and tourism industry, it is essential to secure the faith of your customers and encourage them to trust your business. This element of client confidence has special resonance due to the unfamiliar nature of being away from home. Therefore, with EatWalkPorto, it was essential that the website was an excellent and professional site. This in turn enabled the company to showcase its brilliant services with a high class personality. This in turn, gives the firm added legitimacy.
