I am very new to SSL and just installed it for the first time for one of my sites. A couple of things:
1. I noticed that my PageSpeed and GT Metrix score went down a little bit. Is this normal?
2. The lock icon in the browser is gray for me when for other people's SSL site, it is green. When you click on the lock icon in the browser, you get this message: "Your connection to shiftwebsolutions.com is encrypted with modern cryptography. However, this page includes other resources which are not secure. These resources can be viewed by others while in transit, and can be modified by an attacker to change the look of the page." What do I need to do to fix this?
3. I can't remember where I read it, but awhile back I think I read somewhere that there are some steps I need to take after installing SSL. My site has been around for about 5 years and I have a lot of backlinks from other sites. Nothing is going to be effected and my old links with "http" instead of "https" still work, correct? Are there important steps or advice I need to take after installing SSL? Your suggestions are appreciated!
In case you need it, the site in question is shiftwebsolutions.com.
