SSL is a way of encrypting websites to make them safer and less hackable. Google is already penalizing sites that DON’T have this in place.
Things are about to get a whole lot worse for pages with logins and credit card forms come January 2017.
Starting January 1st, 2017, Google will be penalizing websites that don't use a Secure Certificate.

April 21st’s mobile-friendly update boosts mobile search rankings for pages that are legible and usable on mobile devices.
As we noted earlier this year, today’s the day we begin globally rolling out our mobile-friendly update. We’re boosting the ranking of mobile-friendly pages on mobile search results.
Now searchers can more easily find high-quality and relevant results where text is readable without tapping or zooming, tap targets are spaced appropriately, and the page avoids unplayable content or horizontal scrolling.
PRINT MEDIA IS NOT DEAD!

We've heard it said many times: Print is dead.
But startups are questioning this idea.
"It's just like in retail [where] people are saying stores are dead," said Ethan Song, co-founder of menswear startup Frank & Oak. "[Stores] used to be the main thing, and they're not anymore. But they're still very impactful."

"I recently had the pleasure to work with Adam Mehlhaff from Blue Chrome Studios when I wanted to create a website for my new business, Dusty Lilacs Vintage Rentals.
Adam did a fantastic job on my website and was very creative. He designed my logo and made several suggestions that we used including my tag line of "Vintage Rentals That Fit Your Style" that really sums up my business. He was very easy to work with and completed the website in a reasonable amount of time. Thanks again Adam for a job well done,"
"Talk about exceeding a customer's expectations...I recently had a situation where I needed to create a new website immediately. I was referred to Blue Chrome Studios and all I can say is WOW! Adam, the owner of Blue Chrome Studios, not only went above and beyond what I could have possibly expected from a web design company, but did so with passion, creativity and exceptional customer service.
I would recommend Blue Chrome Studios to anyone, or any company, who is in need of updating, or creating a new website!"
"Thank you for the amazing work you did on my website. You are truly an expert in your field and I was very fortunate to have you recommended to me by a very good friend.
Your professional attitude and your ability to assess who I was and what I needed, helped me feel very comfortable that the finished product would accurately reflect my work. Your compassion, integrity and follow-up is second to none. The finished product exceeded my expectations and was accomplished in record time.
I am so glad that I waited until I found Blue Chrome Studios to do my website, and I look forward to that continued relationship. I have learned when you find something great to hold on to it. I look forward to having future projects completed by your company."
I just wanted to say thanks to you and your staff for the outstanding service provided during the construction of my company's website. Blue Chrome Studios completely surpassed my expectations. I could not have asked for a more painless process as you were always available to assist with any questions I had.
What impressed me the most was how personal your service was. As a start up business and never having a website you made the process a breeze. I cannot thank you enough for all of your assistance.
