Does anyone know why Google is submitting my site as https:// instead of http:// ?
It warns users on some of my wordpress website pages saying its not SSL secure?

Any ideas please???
Thank you

Have you registered an SSL certificate for your website?

I’d suggest you check your Google Webmaster Tools and see if it’s been configured with HTTPS there.

The last time I saw this happen was because of Webmaster Tools being incorrectly setup.

In addition, make sure that your hosting environment was not configured with https without a valid SSL.

nowadays they are no longer as expensive if you think that visitors are concerned about it, worth the investment.

or take a look at openssl if you use amazon or other similar server, you can implement after do some read .

Hello,

It’s very true, SSL certificates are not expensive at all. Though I strongly recommend and suggest staying away from the cheapo’s offered by GoDaddy. The reputation is horrible and isn’t really seen as an advantage to you.

Comodo SSL Certificates are fairly cheap. There are others out there of course, but I’d recommend you doing some research on what suits your needs best and what kind of reputation you want to be associated with. I am a firm believer that if getting an SSL certificate, you should be considering a company with a good reputation.

Comodo isn’t the best out there, but they are fairly decent. If you can afford GeoTrust, I’d recommend them, they’re a step down from Verisign in my books and much more affordable.

@GemmaXx Fastcomet is offering free SSL as long as you host with them. I am using their hosting and SSL and both are awesome :slight_smile:
