Chrome Starts Telling Users HTTP Sites Are Not Secure

Chrome Starts Telling Users HTTP Sites Are Not Secure

Since mid-winter Google planned to come out and make a statement and confirm brand non-HTTPS sites as “Not Secure,” and today, with Chrome 68, that change is being rolled out to a wide audience. Should this impact your normal, daily interent usage. Probably not. Most major website and shopping sites already have dealt with the non-secure issue. There is a difference between http and https. A lot of times when you switch over to enter personal information the website switches over automatically anyways.

Key Takeaways:

  • Instead of the small “i” icon for HTTP URLs, Chrome will add a “Not secure” label of text to that.
  • Chrome will mark all plain HTTP sites as “not secure.” Google has given webmasters and publishers six months’ notice of this upcoming change, and it is now going live tomorrow.
  • Depending upon the size of a site and scope of the project, a migration from HTTP to HTTPS can be quite an undertaking.

What To Do About That One-Star Review

What to do about a one star review

A one star review can often be seen as a huge black mark on your reputation. Everyone else likes me, what is wrong with this person? This really is an opportunity to own what this person says and examine what really happened. It could be situational, as in this person had a bad day, or maybe you do really have a problem you need to address. Examine this problem as a larger part of the business to determine the root of it and see how it fits in. You might find that “big problem” to the review that may be something your regulars are just overlooking.

Key Takeaways:

  • Don’t try to tell your side of the story, this can make a business look defensive
  • Do not ignore the bad review, you may look uncaring
  • As a business you can’t make everyone happy so the occasional negative review is to be expected
