Data Secured by Certified SSL SHA256:
All content transmitted to and from this website is carried via 128bit Secure Socket Layers (SSL) encryption. New Zealand banking websites also operate on SSL but usually with 256bit security settings. This a system by which only the browser and the website hold the key to viewing the data, however, if you manually enter this site using unsecured http protocol your information will not be encrypted. To use our secure channel, ensure the address bar in your browser shows our domain name as https://crankedseo.com/
While SSL will make data exchanges between this site and your browser virtually impossible to intercept, I do not provide any absolute guarantee of data security. Most websites do not offer their visitors any certified data security at all.
What is SSL?
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a protocol for enabling data encryption on the internet and for helping web site users confirm the owner of the website. SSL is most commonly used to protect communications between web browsers and servers. However it is increasingly used for server to server communications and for web-based applications.
What is encryption and why are there different levels?
Encryption is a mathematical process of coding and decoding information. The number of bits (40-bit, 56-bit, 128-bit, 256-bit) tells you the size of the key. Like a longer password, a larger key has more possible combinations. When an encrypted session is established, the encryption level is determined by the capability of the web browser, SSL certificate, web server, and client computer operating system.

Can SSL Affect SEO and Ranking?
Yes it can. Since 2014 websites using https (hyper text transfer protocol secured) are considered by Google to have a greater level of credibility, because to obtain a certificate the site owner must be able to verify ownership of the website content by holding full administrative rights over the domain. SSL also provides the website visitor with greater assurances over any data they may exchange via the site and would be essential if any financial data such as credit card details where exchanged. While data exchanges on this site are relatively minor, it demonstrates our commitment to ensuring your privacy, and this is valued by (some) search engines.
