Welcome to episode 20 of the ask bunka show
we’ve received tons of great questions and a lot of them are around securing chrome and your website
so if you didn’t know in January they announced that you need an SSL certificate and it will be a ranking signal so a lot of people are trying to fix this and they are still fixing it now halfway through the year, so Ashwin has asked us, I Am not able to secure my website it’s showing as connection not secure, can you help? And yes we can, stay tuned
alright so we’re going to head over to his website, which I Have right here and you’ll see at the top that he has the (i) circle which most websites have but they want it to be secure and what it is saying, chrome is saying this site is not secure so first thing I’ll do is goto www.whynopadlock.com, paste in the HTTPSURL and hit check, so again, what this site does if you haven’t seen it in the past, is it checks to see why your site is not HTTPS compatible and to why Chrome is giving you that thing, a few times it does show this error, and its not really an error, its basically saying the number of items downloaded from this site is zero so for whatever reasons this tool can;t find anything, um, so, its not valid, excreta, excreta, you can do a test again but 99% of the time it doesn’t do anything, so what I do is usually come back here and right click and goto view source code, and then “command F” or “control F”, and I Search for HTTP: and you’ll see all the times that this is called, so I go ahead and hit search and there are actually 9 instances where this is called, most of the time they do matter, so it just depend on how you had it listed, so if you look through here there are 4, 5, schema is not being called and that’s it, for these things here, just double check them, enter them in, I believe you just type HTTPS an dyou’ll see that it is in fact secure, so the schema.org in the description here, itemtype is saying HTTP: to check if that link is in fact secure, you would them come back and say HTTPS, and it would call it, so if you fix these, research this, 9 items, Iam showing 7 of 9 right here, you will fix your SSL problem and it will show, secure in Chrome, if you have any questions like this, please let us know in the comments, or on our website pressavenue.com, p r e s s a v e n u e dot com and click Ask a questions, and we woul dlove to answer them for you.
