In order to protect my visitors’ data, increase loading speed, and move up the ranks on Google, I recently converted this blog from an unsecured http://… site to a secure https://… site. What happened since, however, is not exactly as expected.
The site does not load any faster, the number of daily visitors has been cut by a factor of three, and some readers have told me that they are getting warnings from Google when connecting.
