Increase Conversions by Fixing HTTPS Errors

This entry was written by one of our members and submitted to our YOUmoz section. The author's views below are entirely his or her own and may not reflect the views of SEOmoz, Inc. dnd drow names

Imagine an elderly grandmother – we’ll call her Grandma Moz. She’s about to make her very first online purchase. She’s used a computer before, but feels some anxiety giving out her personal information over the internet. Then, just when she’s about ready to enter her credit card number, the following message pops up:
What does Grandma Moz do? If she is like 30% of most internet users, she runs and hides her credit card back into her wallet never to be seen again. And the unsuspecting website loses the sale.
The 30% is not a statistic based on a large data set, but rather the experience of an actual client website I work with that recently installed HTTPS on its checkout pages. Instead of seeing an increase in conversions, as would be expected, sales actually dropped after installing HTTPS. A brief investigation showed the culprit to be error messages coming from a single browser – Internet Explorer 8. FIxing the problem became an adventure.
What is an HTTPS Error?
HTTPS is a secure way for browsers to communicate directly with servers using encryption. Without going into the technical details (which I am not an expert on) HTTPS causes your browser’s address bar to turn green or blue on sites like PayPal and SEOmoz’s checkout pages. In Microsoft’s IE8, the overly scary security warning pops up if it detects any HTTPS errors – meaning that some part of the page has been called from a non-secure source.
That's a Secure Connection!
It is important to note that the IE8 security warning DOES NOT necessarily mean the page is dangerous. It only means the browser detected an error, usually a very small one. Although the error may be innocent, the security warning can scare away a good portion of your business, so it is important to root the problem out.
How to Fix HTTPS Errors
1. Determine if You Have a Problem
The easiest way to see if your site has any HTTPS errors is to fire up IE8 (make sure it’s updated if you haven’t used IE in awhile.) Then navigate to your HTTPS pages - as if you were making a purchase or completing a transaction - and see if you get the security warning. Make sure to check every single page protected by HTTPS, as each page can call different resources.
You can also look for the green bar in any browser’s address window. The green often will not display if there are HTTPS problems, but each browser behaves differently so this method is not reliable.
2. Get the Tools
A great resource for sniffing out errors is HttpWatch. Simtec offers a basic edition available as a free download. This powerful tool allows you to “record” all Http requests for any given webpage. With this, you can identify any part of a webpage that isn’t HTTPS compliant.
Once you get the hang of HttpWatch, you will begin to understand how HTTPS errors happen.
The easiest way to wrap your head around this is to visualize a webpage as consisting of many different elements – text, images, JavaScript and even parts of other websites. Each of these individual elements can be “requested” from a different resource – hopefully your secure server. Errors occur when the requested path does not come from a secure source, but rather one that starts with plain old http (without the ‘s’) With HttpWatch, you’ll spot 80% of these errors with ease.
3. Check Your Images
By far the most common of all HTTPS errors are images. The correct way to use images on any HTTPS page is to use relative path in you website code as opposed to absolute image paths.
See the http without the ‘s’? That’s what causing the HTTPS error.
HttpWatch will identify most image errors. You can also view your page’s source code and perform a search for “http://”. Change any images written with absolute paths to relative paths and you will be okay.
4. Look at your Tracking Codes and Javascript
SEOmoz’s favorite Englishman Tom Critchlow recently wrote an excellent post for the Google Analytics Blog detailing HTTPS errors hiding in legacy analytics code. Aside from scoring a guest post on the ultimate high-authority domain, Will expertly explains how webmasters who haven’t updated their tracking code in awhile may unintentionally trigger the IE8 security warning. Read Tom’s post for a full explanation.
Beyond Google Analytics, it’s important to check all the tracking codes and javascript contained on your webpage. For example, say you have CrazyEgg installed on your website to generate user heatmaps. CrazyEgg uses one type of tracking code for regular Http, and another type for Https. To check this and all JavaScript on your page, view your source code and look for any markup that includes a request starting with Http, instead of HTTPS.
5. Digging Deeper – Hidden Errors
The most frustrating errors are the ones you cannot find, the ones that do not show up on HttpWatch and defy all logic. You comb every line of code by hand and still can’t find anything out of sorts. In these cases, the error is often hidden.
By hidden, I mean located in an external CSS or JavaScript file. These are frustrating errors because they don’t show up in your page’s source code. For example, you have a background images coded into your CSS that only appears when a user hovers over a drop-down menu. The CSS file is external, meaning it’s attached to the webpage like this –
But instead of writing the background image using a correct relative URL, the developer used an absolute URL…
This type of error is hard to spot because the CSS or JavaScript in question may not appear on your webpage. If you can’t find your HTTPS error, it’s best to search through all your external CSS and JavaScript files and look for anything there that starts with http.
This is not an exhaustive list of HTTPS errors, but it covers 95% of common problems to get you started.
After we fixed the error on my client's site, conversions from IE8 rose 30%. As a result, the client recovered tens of thousands of dollars a year in sales. If you have other solutions to this problem, I’d love to hear them in the comments.

The Use of Digital Signage: A Peek into the Future
Have you ever noticed the number of screens around us is increasing quickly? Previously, we only had a TV at home. And some had the luxury of a PC and monitor as well. But now, screens are everywhere. The route you take to reach the office has at least one or two screens. Advertising through digital signs has become common. Statistics say digital signage has a 47.7% effectiveness on brand awareness. Your workplace also has multiple screens. Hospitals, government offices, and even schools have screens today. Some are used for educational purposes while some help people to navigate their way. In short, the use of digital signage is prevalent today. Not just in one particular region or sector but all over the world, in every field. And one can only guess how the use of these screens will further grow in the future. Here’s a peek into the future of digital signage: AI-Based Automation Since digital signage has been used in different sectors, with little automation, it can bring revolution in different sectors. For example, a digital screen used in a school can display different types of content at different times of the day. Or signage used on the road to help people navigate, the same screen can show different directions one by one. In short, AI-based screens will pave the way to show appropriate advertisements at different times. And once AI has become intelligent enough to answer specific queries, digital signage will be used in the health industry, information technology, demographic advertising, etc. Use for Corporate Corporation The use of digital signage in a corporate world, for corporate communication, might not be a straightforward thing. But worldwide popular brands that employ thousands of people and have big offices can use these screens for corporate communication. PwC(a multinational professional services network of firms) has 2000 employees. They recently relocated their offices to Dublin. And to keep all of their employees up to date with the latest information, they installed 29 digital signs in high footfall locations throughout the 22,000 sq ft office complex. Now, their staff can get all the recent work-related updates as they walk to lunch or between meetings. And through these screens, the company can show people what their business is about and their workplace policies to the visitors. Touch Screen Innovation Since the rise of touch mobiles, human minds have become accustomed to touch screens. Imagine using a traditional mobile phone with a keypad, would you be able to deal with it now? Most probably not! And that’s why we will have more touch screens in the future. In fact, in some countries, they have already become quite common. People use these screens to get a cup of coffee, their favorite snacks, leave a customer review outside a shop, and much more. Digital Signage for Enhanced Branding The most common use of digital signage is an advertisement. You can boost your brand awareness campaigns by using digital signage at the relevant spots. Though they are still used for branding purposes but are not really common because of the price. However, in the future, digital signage will become flexible. You will have these screens available at different prices ( varying from quality to quality of the signage) and even smaller brands would be able to afford them. Live Streaming Live streaming of sports events has become common. You must have come across screens showing a live football or cricket match to passing by cars. And when the match enters crunch moments, you can imagine the traffic jam. Digital signage is still being used for live streaming purposes, though very rare. But in the future, more people will invest in these screens to livestream podcasts, sports events, and promotional content produced for the promotion of their brand. Intelligent Advertisement Intelligent advertisement can cut down your marketing expenses and increase your ROI to a great extent. Only if you could show your ads to the right people (males or females of a particular age who are more likely to be interested in your product), businesses will reap huge revenues. That’s where digital signage can make the difference. Imagine an individual walking into your store. The digital signage detects the face and because it’s intelligent, it can detect if the visitor is a male or female, his/her age, etc. And once it knows who the visitor is, it can automatically show him/her the products the visitor is more likely to buy. In the future, brands will invest heavily in AI. And artificial intelligence coupled with digital screens will pave the way for effective, ROI-driven marketing. Summary When it comes to the use of digital signage in the future, the possibilities are endless. One can only imagine the future with the current trends, and emerging technologies. However, one thing is for sure, digital signage will make a big difference. If you need one of such signages for your business in Dubai, get in touch with a reliable signage supplier in Dubai
