HTTPS Implementation

The next step in Google’s New World Order for the internet was to begin showing “not secure” for non-HTTPS websites in the Chrome address bar.This update rolled out earlier this week.
I’m not going to get into why a simple blog that has nothing to do with ecommerce, or has readers input anything more sensitive than a comment name, email and comment needs to be “secure”, as apparently to the big G it doesn’t matter.
I began researching HTTPS implementation in earnest this afternoon. Initially I was going to wait until next month to get onto it (still recovering from responsive design), but…

Responsive design…

I implemented responsive design on BehindMLM a few years back and general consensus is that mobile users were happy with the desktop version of the site.The sidebars are first to go and while I can have them below the article, due to their vertical layout it doesn’t sit right.
Anyway since then mobile users can request a desktop version easily enough so I don’t think it’s much of an issue if I strip things down for a small screen visitors.
A few days ago I noticed Google showing me warnings about BehindMLM not being “mobile optimized” in its organic search results.

Holiday break…

I think it’s been about four years since I took my last proper holiday break from BehindMLM.Anyway I’m due for a break to recharge the batteries.
Cell phones these days means I won’t be offline but reviews will resume around next Wednesday.
Comments will go live as normal and If there’s any breaking news I’ll still be able to cover it. We should be right though, it’s been pretty quiet the last few weeks.
Thanks for the ongoing support and readership! See you in a few days.

Will the UK ever regulate rampant Companies House registration fraud?

The level of MLM company registration fraud taking place in the UK is such that, whenever you see a Companies House certificate paraded about as proof of legitimacy, save yourself some time and just assume the company in question is a scam.I can’t recall the last time I came across a legitimate MLM company for review incorporated in the UK, and it’s been this way for years.The primary reason for this is that UK Companies House incorporation appears to be entirely unregulated.Anyone from anywhere in the world can pay the £12 GBP fee and register online. Punch in whatever personal details you want…
