We strongly recommend that SSL Hosting. Frankly, if you have a website and you want to generate leads, take job orders, get job seekers to apply to your jobs, or just tell people about your business, you have to host on SSL.
Here are five compelling reasons:
SSL has been a Google ranking factor since 2014, and study after study have confirmed that websites with SSL outrank websites without it (source: searchengineland.com).
- Faster websites.
Websites with SSL load faster than non-SSL sites and that will keep more people on your site longer.
- Chrome browsers will display a “not secure” warning if you don’t have SSL.
As of July 2018, Google’s Chrome browser will display a warning that your website is not secure if you don’t have SSL…and that might scare people from applying for your jobs.
- Some job aggregator websites won’t accept your jobs without it.
If you use Haley Marketing’s Job Board, we send your jobs to a number of job aggregators each night. If you don’t have SSL on your website (and Job Board), then your job will not appear on these sites…and you lose the free job distribution.
- It only costs $15 per month.
Upgrading from standard to SSL hosting is one of the easiest decisions you can make. For just $15 a month, you get better SEO, improved website performance in all browsers, extra job distribution, and provide greater trust for employers and job seekers who visit your site.
