Hi guys, I guess some of you already know about this option, but for those who do not, here is this tutorial to get an SSL + green lock for free.

If you want a FREE SSL certificate, reliable and easy to configure, I recommend CLoudfare, you can set it up in 5 minutes and also add the green lock on your website, which normally costs $ 80, with cloudfare is free.
tutorial here: https://www.bloggerscrunch.com/guide-to-setup-cloudflare-ssl-wordpress/
on the guide the boy forgot miss a step, and it is to go to general settings in your wordpress and change the version "http" to "https".

If you have any questions, leave your comment.
NOTE: I do not think that https will help improve your seo in google, but it will give much more confidence to the visitor, especially in eccomerce sites and niche sites, amazon affiliate.

Or just contact your hosting company and ask for them to "Force Https".

Or you can sign up for free Shopify and get on that way. I have a green lock with a $0.48 domain and it definitely didn't cost me $80.

For those who don't use Wordpress, you can just redirect http to https automatically by editing the .htaccess file.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [R,L]
thanks

misleading title. green bar != green lock. green bar is better and adds more authority. CF doesnt provide it

also you dont need to change http to https in wordpress settings. if u check correct options in CF all will be done automatically
