Wash and Brush Up for Bournemouth Avionics

After 4 years, the Bournemouth Avionics website was in need of a bit of a tidy up, and a bit of re-modelling, which has just been completed.

When originally conceived and built, the site was mainly focused on the 'services' aspect of the business: avionics sales, installation and service; aircraft engineering, maintenance, and storage. The then new online store selling avionics and accessories was secondary to these services.

Major changes to Google Search Console

The launch statement from Google states: 

"Search Console is introducing a redesigned product to help you manage your presence on Google Search. The new Search Console was rebuilt from the ground up to provide the tools and insights that site owners and SEOs have been asking for. You can now confirm which of your pages are indexed and get information on how to fix indexing errors. You can also monitor your performance on Google Search with 16 months of data (to enable year over year comparisons)."

New Drive on SSL from Google

Since the beginning of October 2017, Google has increased pressure on website owners to adopt the secure https: web protocol with the latest updates to the Chrome browser.

Over the last couple of years, Google have been pushing the use of SSL to improve web security by favouring sites in search results that use SSL (https:) connections instead of the common non-secure http: connection.

The new Chrome update takes this a step further by warning any page containing a form (a contact form or any other type of interaction that requires user input) as insecure if the form is not sent over an https secure connection.
