SSL for an SEO boost

As a small or medium enterprise adding security is a great and now (thankfully) a simple change you can make to your Squarespace site. 

The benefits of using SSL are: 

  1. SSL creates a secure connection between a customer's web browser and the server of the company they're interacting with. This provides peace of mind for your site visitors.
  2. You're easier to find - now Google gives priority to secure sites in their search results.

To switch to SSL login to Squarespace and follow the steps below...

Choose a setting in the Security & SSL panel:

  1. From the Home Menu, click Settings.
  2. Under Website, click Security & SSL.
  3. Under Security Preference, choose a setting.

Now just switch to secure as in the picture below for automatic SSL.

Save your Settings and in a few moments refresh your site in a fresh browser tab. You should now see a Secure lock at the top of you website beside the site URL.
