Google the giant search engine is urging all small business websites to be hosted on a secure server. At first Google was insisting this be done by Oct.1, 2017. Then the deadline got pushed back until April 1, 2018. At least that is what I heard.
Big deal you might be wondering. How does this affect me? Pretty positively actually. In the new Chrome browser (v62) A little security (padlock) icon appears in the address bar at the top of the page. If present the page you are on is secure. If not present a big red nastygram appears saying "This Site Not Secure."
While on a secure page your personal information is protected from outside hackers. You'll like this feature when filling in forms, interacting with an app or making online purchases.
Would you want to use a website that tells you up front it is not safe to use? I doubt it. Would you buy anything from a site that you know could be hacked. Again, not likely.
This is not just a feel good move. With identity theft being so prevelent Google cannot afford to promote unsecure websites. They plan on devaluing unsecure websites in the future. For a webmaster that could spell doom or gloom. Doom if the site cannot be moved to a secure server. Gloom if the site can be moved but doesn't meet secure protocol.
That is why BWT is being rebuilt again. Recent updates include but are not limited to, page by page evaluation and cleaning, menu structure updates, blog post re-organization and template modernization.

You just need to follow the right process, the correct steps. And that requires you to make the critical offline-to-online business mind shift from "location, location, location" to...Information, Information, Information!
Updates include new template, secure protocol settings, broken link removal, code cleaning and blog pounding. All these changes should add up to a more pleasant user experience.
Template update - While BWT has been using a mobile responsive layout since 2010 many earlier pages have to be converted. The current template has been in use since May 2017.
Secure protocol settings - First I can't say enough good things about my server and host SiteSell Inc. They figured how to do a one-click website transfer from non-secure to secure servers. I just have to push the button. That is when I'm ready.
Meanwhile BWT needs to be prepared for secure server compatibility. That means all incoming data must be from another secure server or the page will be considered non-secure. To avoid that incoming data is either being switched to a secure source or being removed
Google has urged that all business websites move to a secure server soon. After a grace period Google will begin de-ranking or even unlisting non-compliant websites from their search engine.
Yikes, that could be a disaster for you or me. However BWT has tools that check a website for security issues. BWT started with about 1400 security issues. After cleaning out the easy stuff that number has been reduced to about 250.
BWT is working through the remaining issues and is aiming for completion by the end of 2017.
Broken link removal - in the past BWT sponsored many tools, marketing strategies and other webmasters. Over the years many of these products (and people) have been removed from the Internet. That makes for a lot of broken links over time.
Broken links are merely annoying for users but for search engines they are a scourge. SEs frown on broken links to the point that web-pages and whole websites can be de-listed because of them.
BWT is testing all on page links to make sure they work properly. If they are broken, they're deleted.
Code cleaning - this website began in 2007 and has experienced many updates since. Including changes to the layout and coding techniques. Many early pages were built using old and I mean old technology.
Sometimes we can't believe the poor coding that was used, oh so long ago. Many pages need to be brought up to current standards or are being removed.
Blog pounding - during this period of reconstruction BWT is using EasyBlogs blogging software as our HTML editor. I love this tool. EB separates content and template editors. Which make for an excellent content management system and template organizer.
Since EasyBlogs is a blog generator BWT is adding most updates to this blog. Stay tuned... we're blog pounding, code cleaning, broken link removing and going secure. Enjoy!
