Suggetion for implementing ssl for wordpress blog
It seems an interesting forum and this is my first input as a newbie. I have a wordpress blog on which I regularly update the content. Recently, I got news that from now, Google will consider HTTPS signal for ranking and induce content websites to redirect to HTTPS. I think the move that Google takes for a content-based website is acceptable.
In this context, I came through a press release about offering a 1 yr free comodo positive ssl with secured site seal for content based websites, blogs, and forums.
Kindly share your experience with ssl2buy.com, if anyone has taken a benefit of this offer.
I have no experience with ssl2buy.com, I would just get one from Namecheap with a domain reg/renewal.
This offer is only applicable for content based web sites; requester must implement SSL2BUY “Secured Site Seal” on the web site. This offer is valid until September 15th, 2014.
A link back and marketing for their company/site for the cost of a free/cheap SSL.
As per the technical side I just put my whole site under https using a htaccess re-direct. Check it out at https://gwych.uk
If it's purely for 'SEO', get a free one from startssl.
After Google announcement “HTTPS as a ranking signal”, we are offering Comodo Positive SSL certificate at free of cost and only content rich websites can claim this offer.
If you have an e-commerce website, we offers discounted price SSL certificates. You can check our latest deals and discount offers here - https://www.ssl2buy.com/ssl-discount-offers

While they click on SSL site seal, they will see the full detail of certificate such as organization name, address, and certificate issuance and expiry date.

Aren't users going to get the "Your connection is not private" error/warning?
Is there a tutorial on how you did this?
install ssl certificate (depends on httpd used)
redirect http to https (depends on httpd used)
Oh, that's what he meant. Thanks!
