    Hey guys, here's a question. Two of the ranking factors for Google are speed and utilizing https.

    I have a domain which has a SSL certificate on its non www version - https://domain.com but the page is rather slow since I'm not using a CDN.
    The www. version of my site - http://www.domain.com is using a CDN and therefore is fast, however doesn't utilize SSL.

    Is there a way to combine the power of the SSL and speed, without installing a certificate on the http://www.domain.com and without utilizing a CDN on the https://domain.com

    Would there be a way using redirects, setting up the preferred domain on Google Console or other things that would allow me to benefit (from Google) from both the "ranking signals" - speed and https together, and not just one of them? Essentially Google rewarding me for both the speed and https, though there are on www and non-www.

    I hope it makes sense.

    Why do you have a www and a non-www version in the first place? I'm pretty sure this is creating duplicated content and just plainly look confusing for crawlers.

    I'm not sure to understand why you are not using a CDN with and SSL at the same time? We are talking about a few milliseconds in most case, that shouldn't impact your ranking.
