I can see where super fast mobile pages can be of use.
Major news channels could benefit from it as their readers can read quicker.
Organizations targeting places with slow internet connections would make it easier for them to connect.
Highly popular websites could create a better user experience by offering faster but simpler access.
But how is this relevant to most businesses on the web?
I personally think that at this time the concept is only of value to a limited number of players that have customers where speed/bandwidth is critical.
I'm proud of for organising what will be an awesome event in our great city.
She's already signed up some top speakers including , and , whom I enjoyed seeing at #brightonSEO last year.
And we aim to make this a uniquely Australian/Adelaide experience for all those that attend, including the speakers. From Pie Floaters (Google it) to cage diving with Great White Sharks!
I hope some of my online SEO buddies can make it over. I'll be the tour guide.

Wanted to bounce this to the top of your inbox. Did you manage to checkout the link in my last email?
Tony, found Web Site Advantage on Google's partner portal and I thought it would be best to reach out to you directly.
I love what their website says:
Email Outreach: We help nurture your prospects into customers with our tailored outreach solution.
I wonder how much long that domain can be used to send emails.
_Do I lose "link juice" from the redirects? No, for 301 or 302 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS no PageRank is lost. _
So moving to https and the redirects it causes should not affect you. But this comment confirms to me that 301 redirects do cause some extra loss in general.
It also implies 302s will pass "link juice" in some cases, backed up by a later comment:
it's incorrect that 302 redirects wouldn't pass
# Do I need to set something in Search Console? No, just add the HTTPS site there. The change-of-address setting doesn't apply for HTTP -> HTTPS moves.
# How can we do an A/B test? Don't cloak to Googlebot specifically, use 302 redirects + rel=canonical to HTTP if you want to test HTTPS but not have it indexed. Don't block via robots.txt . More about A/B testing at https://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.ch/2012/08/website-testing-google-search.html (302 redirects aren't cached.)
# Will the rel=canonical guarantee that the HTTP URL is indexed? No, but it's a very strong signal when picking the indexed URL.
# What's the next step after testing? Follow our site-move documentation ( https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6033049 ). Use 301 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS, confirm the new version by adding a rel=canonical on the HTTPS page, pointing to itself, and submit sitemaps including both HTTP & HTTPS URLs with new change-dates (in the long run, just keep the HTTPS sitemap).
# What about the robots.txt file? The HTTPS site uses the HTTPS robots.txt file. Check that it's reachable or serves a 404 result code, and check that your HTTP URLs aren't blocked by the HTTP robots.txt file.
# Is it OK to have just some pages on HTTPS? Yes, no problem! Start with a part, test it, add more.
# Should I move everything together, or is it fine to do sections? Moving in sections is fine.
# Will I see a drop in search? Fluctuations can happen with any bigger site change. We can't make any guarantees, but our systems are usually good with HTTP -> HTTPS moves.
# Which certificate do I need? For Google Search, any modern certificate that's accepted by modern browsers is acceptable.
# Do I lose "link juice" from the redirects? No, for 301 or 302 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS no PageRank is lost.
# Will we see search keywords in Google Analytics when we're on HTTPS? This won't change with HTTPS, you can see the search queries in Search Console.
# How can I test how many pages were indexed? Verify HTTP / HTTPS separately in Search Console, use Index Status for a broad look, or the sitemaps indexed counts for sitemap URLs.
# How long will a move from HTTP to HTTPS take? There are no fixed crawl frequencies, it depends on the size of your site, and the speed of crawling that's possible. The move takes place on a per-URL basis.
Hope this helps clarify some of the open questions! Let me know if there's anything missing.
Client is fixed. I'll keep an eye out to see if it makes any real world difference.
