We recently received an e-mail from Google, informing us that Google + will be closing down on the 2nd April 2019.
Part of the e-mail stated the following:
On April 2nd, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts. Photos and videos from Google+ in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be deleted. You can download and save your content, just make sure to do so before April. Note that photos and videos backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted.
The process of deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts, Google+ Pages, and Album Archive will take a few months, and content may remain through this time. For example, users may still see parts of their Google+ account via activity log and some consumer Google+ content may remain visible to G Suite users until consumer Google+ is deleted.
As early as February 4th, you will no longer be able to create new Google+ profiles, pages, communities or events.
Please note this is not the search engine, but google’s social network site. It will not affect your ranking on Google.
If you have any concerns regarding this shut down then please contact us and we will advise you on how this may affect you.
We have waited and analysed our website performance before migrating our website to a secure web server.
In the past this can impact your website performance as your website needs to be decoded at the clients computer.
However as technology advances, smartphones and computers are becoming ever more powerful. The slight drop in performance, more than makes up for your secure website browsing on public internet connections ie free WiFi.
From an SEO perspective, Google considers site security to be a ranking signal and will favour websites with HTTPS. Although it is currently only a ‘lightweight’ ranking signal and will therefore only affect a very small number of search queries, we expect this to evolve.
All our new websites can offer this new facility upon request as part of our quotation.

We have now created a new YouTube channel for our website. This enables us to show videos on our website without creating extra load on our webserver.
