Update Shaun, who kindly hosts this site, has enabled https:// over the weekend. However because of a number of issues the default remains http:// for the time being. If you wish to use the secure version of this site, you'll need to change any bookmarks or shortcuts to the site and include the all important "s" in the web address you use. All of your history will need to be cleared and any cached passwords also cleared so that you start afresh as far as your web browser is concerned. https://www.CookingBites.com will take you to the secure version of the site. For the time being if you enter just www.CookingBites.com it will still go to the unsecured version. This will change in the future but in order for that to happen, I'll need everyone's help big time. If and when I take the site over to default to the secure site (which personally I think is inevitable) we'll lose our Google ranking (and every other search engine rankings as well ) and present to the world as a brand new site with zero credibility/ranking. If/when this happens we drop off the first page of results in any search engine and people searching for a recipe, help or advice simply won't see us. The number of new members coming our way will cease until we climb back up the rankings. We need to be on the first page or two of the search results. In order to do that, I would need all of your help with new content and new threads (not replies to threads unless they are current and new). New threads are the single most important thing along with accurate advice, good photos and current news topics (food or drink related) being discussed etc. One sentence replies that add nothing to the thread will not help us at all in regaining our Google ranking, in fact they actual do the opposite. Obviously moving to the default site being the secure version has to happen sooner or later, and in my view, it needs to happen soon so that we can regain our credibility online because I believe that before long more web browsers will push towards secure sites and those that are not secure will be pushed down the search engine rankings being penalised for not having https:// in their web address. The questions I have for all active members are Are you behind me on this? Can you put the 'work' in that will be required to regain our online credibility? Can you all commit to creating several new threads each week so that we get the new content we need? Threads in the café forum do not count towards this rating so they can tick over as normal and chatter won't be affected but everywhere else would need new and up-to-date content.
