SSL Certificates for your your domain

Implementing SSL Certificates are a must if you're running a website that needs data encryption. Having this in mind most ecommerce webmasters are tempted to go for a SSL Certificate without thinking about the issues that will follow.

The most important aspect when it comes to SEO and SSL certificates is dealing with the duplicate content.

Yes https://www.mysite.com is different from http://www.mysite.com although many people don't know that. You might end up buying great SSL Certificates and suddenly see a loss in traffic because the mighty G. will start penalizing your site for duplicate content.
