Does not having the https in links hurt seo?

I think that is an interesting question and I believe Google and other search engines take them into consideration. However, I have seen many webmasters and SEOs who think that having https in links or using https in URLs affects SEO.

In my opinion, they are wrong.

A few years ago I wrote a post about why having https is not necessary for SEO. And I still believe that it is not.

But there are exceptions. And it is important to note that there is a difference between Google favoring the https links and Google taking the https into account.

I have seen many webmasters that are convinced that using https in links affects SEO. They believe that Google will rank the page as more trustworthy.

This assumption is not correct. Google does take the https into account.

In other words, Google will take the fact that the page has a https certificate into account. It does not mean that Google will rank a page as more trustworthy.

Incorrect assumption

This is my view of the matter.

Google will use the fact that the page has a secure HTTPS certificate and will rank it as a more trustworthy page.

This does not mean that you should not use https in links and URLs. You should do it if you want to get more traffic from your pages and you want to get more clicks from Google.

Having the https in links and URLs for a page affects your rankings because Google takes it into account.

This does not mean that it is a good practice to use the https in links and URLs. But it is not a bad practice to use it.

Why https not necessary for SEO?

The first reason I want to mention is that the HTTPS protocol is not necessary for SEO.

If you want to get more traffic from your pages and you want to get more clicks from Google, then it is not necessary to have the https in links.

When you do it, it will not affect your rankings. However, it will still get you more traffic and more clicks from Google.

The second reason that I want to mention is that having https in links is not necessary for the webmaster.

It is not necessary for SEO.

The third reason I want to mention is that it is not necessary to use the https in links.

For example, if you use the https in links, you can use the https in the address bar.

In this case, you can still get more clicks from Google because you are using the https in both places.

Some webmasters think that using the https in address bar is good practice and they are convinced that it is good for SEO.

They are not wrong. However, it is not necessary to do this. It is a different thing.

What is the difference between the https and http in links?

The first important point is that the https is part of the http protocol.

This protocol was introduced in the year 2010. The reason for the introduction of the https was that the old HTTP protocol was not secure.

That was one of the reasons why some webmasters started to use the http instead of the https.

That is why the https is considered as part of the http.

This is a very important distinction because it has an important difference for SEO.

The old version of the HTTP protocol was not secure. This is why the webmasters started to use the https instead of the http.

This is not the reason why the old version of the HTTP protocol has a bad reputation. It is because there were security issues and it was not possible to encrypt the information on the web.

The security issues in the past are not something that should concern us.

The reason why the old version of the HTTP protocol was not secure was a result of the fact that the webmasters did not encrypt the information. This is why the old version of the HTTP protocol is considered to be insecure.

The same thing happened with the email protocol and the webmail. There was no encryption at that time.

Some webmasters used email protocols and webmail protocols because they were faster than the http protocols.

The speed of the protocols is the reason why it was easier for them.

That is why this is a different issue.

How does the https in links affect SEO?

The second important point is that the https in links is not used for SEO.

It is just used for the user experience. You should not use it for SEO.

If you want to get more traffic from your pages, then you should use the https in links.

This means that you should use the https in your links because Google will rank the page as a more trustworthy page.

When you use the https in your links, you can use the https in the address bar.

The address bar will be the same as the page with the https in the links. The user will be confused when there is a HTTPS in the links and HTTPS in the address bar.

This is why we recommend that you use the https in the links and URLs.

If you use the https in your links and URLs, then you are using it for the user experience.

Therefore, it is not necessary for SEO.

The third point is that the https in links is not necessary for SEO.

The fourth point is that you can get more clicks from Google if you use it in your links.

How to use the https in URLs and links?

The fifth important point is that you should use the https in the links and URLs.

That is why I mentioned the fourth point.

If you do not use the https in your links and URLs, then you will not get more clicks from Google.

If you do not use the https in the links and URLs, then you will not get more traffic from your pages.

In summary

1. The old version of the HTTP protocol is not secure.

2. It is not necessary for SEO.

3. The https is used for the user experience.

4. The https is not necessary for SEO.

5. You should use the https in your links and URLs.
