Thoughts on Google Panda?

I've been considering how Panda might impact what I do within the content on our website. In the end, I really think it will simply push me to strive for highest possible quality of content, which is a good thing! I think it will have more implications for our web designer, who works with unique tracking and the rest of our analytics efforts. Anyone have any thoughts?

Should we migrate to https?

I recently got a notice from Google that in October 2017 Chrome V62 with show the warning "NOT SECURE" on all our web pages we have a input field for search. Since on most of our pages there is nothing that would require secure information I've never felt the need for HTTPS. Our class registration pages are secure but not the general information pages. The warning is going to scare people though. Are others upgrading their websites?See More
