Should I move my WordPress website to HTTPS?

Takeaway: I have posted a number of articles in the last few months concerning upgrading websites to HTTPS by enabling Transport Layer Security (TLS) or its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). In the past, this was regarding data security via encryption, or avoiding security warnings for users of Google's Chrome web browser. This time, Search Engine Watch explains the importance of HTTPS for search results. Google uses HTTPS as a signal; a factor used in determining the Search Engine Result Page (SERP) position for a site. While HTTPS is currently a “light” signal, at any time Google may adjust its algorithm to increase the value, so why wait until tomorrow when there are already other reasons to upgrade site security today, if you have not done so already.

Takeaway: The award winning app, V for Wikipedia, brings a beautiful typographical and mapping experience to the user. You can take a look at trending topics, use the app as an interactive travel guide, personalize your reading experience, and enjoy it all on a variety of devices. Its definitely worth checking out if Wikipedia is one of your go-to resources (or would be if it was more beautiful).
