#MusingsOfATechie  update
Well it’s been a while. How are you all doing? I realised I had been neglecting my blog so I have dusted off the cobwebs and knuckled down to punching out a quick update.

Read a few more books (all of which I would thoroughly recommend for any fan of literature): Pincher Martin (Wil...

As you may already be aware, Google made an announcement back in August 2014 on the topic of HTTPS as a Ranking Signal. Here’s what they said…

over the past few months we’ve been running tests taking into account whether sites use secure, encrypted connections as a signal in our search ranking algorithms. We’ve seen positive results, so we’re starting to use HTTPS as a ranking signal.

Soon after the Google announcement, a plethora of blog posts surfaced announcing the need to get your website SSL-enabled in order to “boost your Google rankings”. One service provider saw a 300% increase in orders for SSL certificates the day after Google made the announcement.

Six hundred and fifty-six well-thumbed pages made up the latest novel devoured. Fairly compact typography, none of this double-spaced nonsense. I had not read a significantly sized novel for quite some time until I embarked on the experiential roller coaster that is The Magus by Mr. Fowles.

I have been working on some slides for the Web Services module I am running at Bucks New Uni this year so I thought I’d share some of the stuff I’ve been working on back into the community.
