Site links in SSL
In 2014, Google announced that it would change its ranking signal to rank sites that are SSL enabled a bit higher.
Assuming you already have an SSL certificate installed on your web server, there is a quick fix you can apply to have all your site links
https:// instead of non-secure
As noted by Textpattern developer Stef Dawson on the Textpattern GitHub page, all one needs to do currently to deliver secure links is to add a definition to your
config.php file, like so:
Example config.php file contents
<?php $txpcfg['db'] = 'my_txp_db'; $txpcfg['user'] = 'my_txp_user'; $txpcfg['pass'] = 'my_password'; $txpcfg['host'] = 'localhost'; $txpcfg['table_prefix'] = ''; $txpcfg['txpath'] = '/my/path/to/textpattern'; $txpcfg['dbcharset'] = 'utf8'; define('PROTOCOL', 'https://'); ?>
At this time there is no way to have a portion of your site SSL enabled and a portion non-SSL. More information on Google and SSL in this article.
