HTTPS-enabled sites require that all content on the page, including the ads, be SSL-compliant. As such, AdSense will remove all non-SSL compliant ads from competing in the auction on these pages. If you do decide to convert your HTTP site to HTTPS, please be aware that because we remove non-SSL compliant ads from the auction, thereby reducing auction pressure, ads on your HTTPS pages might earn less than those on your HTTP pages.
It ridiculous to put a site under https. The lead generation pages sure but informational pages not gonna happen.
If you are an authoritative site, you want to make sure that the information you provide is not altered before it gets to the user.
If you are so concerned about this, why didn't you migrate years ago (instead of 10 days)?
I find it interesting Google says jump and we say how high. It ridiculous to put a site under https. The lead generation pages sure but informational pages not gonna happen.
That's always been my impression with https sites but I have no evidence to back it up. Also, the array of "invalid certificate" stuff that appears with some of them is also a concern.
I didn't want to lose my social media shares or have access to a smaller ad inventory
Yea, I forgot about those (I have them all turned off)
All I needed to know.
Not "all" if I understand correctly. Third party earnings may have been minimal but that doesn't mean their inclusion didn't push up your earnings.
My earnings climb pretty steadily as they are. My August just finished out at 170% of last August.
