    Hi Rohit,
    Wow. You explained clearly about ssl and the pros and cons. I agree with you that adding ssl to your blog increases the page load time. How about ssl with dedicated hosting on cloud??

    Hi Rohit,

    I had that with my old hosting service that ripped me off and it’s just now coming up for renewal which I won’t renew since they no longer exist. I might look into doing that with the one I’m with now.

    I appreciate you explaining this so well but I also think my site is a little slower so now I’m not sure if I should or not. You’ve given me something to think about definitely.

    […] So does that mean you should use it?  There are pros and cons to this and if you need a better understanding so you can make your own decision then I suggest checking out what Rohit had to share about this topic. […]

    Hey Rohit
    Interesting topic. I was seriously wondering if I should be using SSl when I don’t have a reason to, just to make Google (maybe) happy. I thought it was a waste of time and money so have not.
    If you sell stuff directly and need it for security, then it is another story for sure.
    thanks for sharing

      Yeah, it keeps bugging to many webmaster when Google announce that SSL will be a ranking factor. But there are certain cons about it that things Google forgot to tell.

      Anyways thanks for taking out your time and commenting here.

    Hi Rohit.

    I’m sure glad you didn’t get overly technical here, and you kept it sharp and to the point.

    I came from Adrienne’s site, and was reading about the SERP advantage a few weeks ago. I think I have come to the conclusion that I won’t be getting one for my blog!

    Thanks Rohit, sharing this out now.

    Hi Rohit,

    I’ve landed to this excellent post, because my good friend Adrienne Smith linked it to her post today.

    Wonderful information, and I will talk about it to my web developer and see if this is something I should have.

    I know that according to him my site is pretty fast, but I wouldn’t want my site to be too slow for sure.

    Thanks for this information 🙂

    Hey Rohit,

    This was a great explanation on SSL Certificates. I had a pretty good idea of what they were and how they can benefit, but I didn’t have a lot of details about them.

    But besides that, I have thought of adding SSL Certificates for when I start to get a lot more traffic. I do want my visitors that come to my blog to feel much safer when it gets to that point and plus, as you mentioned, it looks great to Google!

    Thanks for the share! Have a great rest of the weekend!

    Hey Rohit,

    thanks for this great post on SSL Certs, it is something on which I have been planning for the past few months. Am still not completely sure about it but your information will help me think further on it.

    I don’t want my loading speeds to be affected but if SSL can help in rankings then it is a good reason to implement it site-wide.

    PS. Congrats for getting mentioned on Adrienne’s blog

    thanks,

    Hi Rohit

    Thanks for this article, that Adrienne pointed me towards.

    I’ve been wondering whether I should get an SSL certificate because of the Google factor, but having read your pros and cons I think I’ll leave it, because I’m already a bit dubious about the speed of my site!

    At least now I feel I’ve been able to make a balanced decision, so thanks for that, I appreciate your research.

    Have a great week, Joy
