HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) is a security feature that forces web browsers to only access a website over HTTPS (HTTP Secure) connection, even if the user types "http://" in the URL. This helps to ensure that all communication between the browser and the website is encrypted and secure, protecting against potential attacks such as man-in-the-middle attacks.
From an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) perspective, implementing HSTS on a Webflow site can have several effects, both positive and negative:
Overall, implementing HSTS on a Webflow site can have positive effects on SEO by improving security, potentially boosting search engine rankings, and reducing the risk of duplicate content. However, it's important to carefully plan and implement the transition to HTTPS to minimize any potential temporary negative impacts on rankings and backlinks. It's also important to monitor the performance of your website after implementing HSTS and make necessary adjustments to ensure optimal SEO performance.
Even though Webflow provides HSTS as an option in the Enterprise Plan, much like Reverse Proxy for Webflow. It is very much possible to add that without the Enterprise plan of Webflow.
