Step Two: Review and Update All Files
To achieve a truly “Secure” designation (the padlock icon next to your URL), the key, above, is not enough. Every file, including images, videos, PDFs, etc., must also be served by HTTPS. Even the simplest sites with just a few pages can have as many as 200 vulnerable HTTP files, and securing every one of them is the only way for your site to get a Secure designation. Why is a Secure designation so important? Not only is a totally secure site necessary to keep the bad guys away, but Google and others are now favoring totally secure sites. With a Secure designation, your site will be moved up the list of search results, but if your site isn’t secure, it will be moved it down the list toward oblivion, i.e., a waste of your investment.
