Is SSL Really Important For SEO?

Is SSL Really Important For SEO?

The short answer is YES - SSL DOES MATTER

This is not to say that every page one result is secured by SSL. It’s far from a magic bullet or anything close to that. It would be nice if all you had to do to get great ranking is enable SSL and BAM - you’re on the top of the front page now!

But that’s not it at all. You still need a properly SEO’d site to rank well.

This website - WordPress For Life Coaches has ranked well for it’s primary targeted since inception - it’s a website about WordPress for Life Coaches. It’s got a high percentage of content relating to wordpress for life coaches and google has always given it a high position in the space I focus on…

I enabled a free SSL certificate on it right around the time Google said it’s part of the algorithm, front page ranking stayed at about 2-3. Disabled the SSL - site fell to page two within days!

Crazy fast change - switched it back and now the site is back on the top of the front page as it should be!

Now if I would write an article now and then - it would be the number one site within a month…

Do You Really Need Forms On Your Website?

Do You Really Need Forms On Your Website?

YES - YOU DO!

 
http://www.gravityforms.com/ does some nifty stuff - it’s not free but the really nice components for any CMS never are
 
Having used Gravity Forms for some out of the box things like creating pdf’s that get populated with form data and emailed automagically so the info can be printed for internal use to full user integration with Infusionsoft* for variable content display and marketing - this thing can do it all starting at just 39 bucks per year.
 
*Crazy complicated integrations require a more expensive version - but chances are you don’t have any REALLY nutso to contend with - so the cheap one should do way more than you need…
