PSA: Canadian Web Hosting Sites Need to replace Your SSL/TLS Certs by Symantec, Thawte, VeriSign, Equifax, GeoTrust and RapidSSL Immediately!
CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, March 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — This is a PSA (public service announcement) by HostedinCanada.com, a leading Canadian Web Hosting provider. This is a reminder to all website owners. Google’s Chrome browser, which currently makes up 77.9% of browsers used on the internet, and has grown almost every year since 2008, starting at 3.1%, has already started the process of ending support for Symantec SSL/TLS certificates. This includes companies owned by Symantec including Thawte, Verisign, Equifax, GeoTrust and RapidSSL.
Chrome 66 is ending support for Symantec certificates issued before June 1, 2016 on the following schedule:
• The ‘Canary’ release already ended support for these certificates. It was released on January 20th, 2018.
• The Beta release for Chrome 66 will be released on March 15th.
• The Stable release for Chrome 66 will be released on April 17th.
If you are running a Symantec certificate issued before June 1, 2016, and you do not replace that certificate, then from April 17th onwards this is what your site will look like to site visitors (See Image).
As you can clearly see, the error is described as NET::ERR_CERT_SYMANTEC_LEGACY, meaning that your website is using a legacy Symantec certificate that is no longer supported.
Starting with Google Chrome version 70, all remaining Symantec certificates will completely stop working, including those issued after June 1, 2016. Chrome 70’s release schedule for Canary, Beta and Stable is July 20th, September 13th and October 16th respectively.
If your website has an issue, the page should give you a warning. Make sure you just enter the hostname and remove the https:// prefix and the ending slash.
An alternative way to check if your website will have a problem is to download Chrome’s bleeding edge ‘canary’ version and visit your website. Then check the DevTools in Chrome for any warning message regarding your SSL/TLS certificate.
You can find more info on the official Google Security Blog.

There are many factors that influence a sites ranking in voice search results. To figure out which factor is most important, Backlinko conducted an extensive analysis. Here are the findings:
Page speed is crucial. Most of the results were from fast loading pages.
Domain authority is of absolute importance.
Content that ranks well on the desktop also ranks well on voice search.
Surprisingly, Schema is not that important factor as only 36% of sites that ranked well on voice search results were using schema.
41% of Voice search results came from featured snippets.
HTTPS is an absolute must.
This research debunked the myth that Schema is of absolute importance. And also made it clear that page speed is CRUCIAL. All the results that listed well on voice search were almost 2 times faster than traditional pages.
Google’s reliance on domains with high authority for providing voice search results comes from the tendency that they “may” provide higher accuracy as compared to domain’s with less authority. But it is possible that they will come up with a more sophisticated approach for the same in near future.
The research also shed some light on the importance of long-form content. People speak more words that they type, so it’s natural that pages that use comprehensive content will reign supreme in this area.
However, you don’t have to specifically optimize your site’s content for voice search, writing in-depth content will suffice the need.
On a side note, the virtual assistants are on the rise. So the marketers who are willing to offer their clients with latest digital marketing should take these platform seriously.
