    The answer from Site Support:

    As SSL is enabled for your website it is using HTTPS by default. So, it should not cause any issue with site SEO.

    What does that do if you embed them?

    HTTP Strict-Transport-Security (HSTS) response header lets a web site tell browsers that it should only be accessed using HTTPS, instead of using HTTP.

    I was told Google looks for this as a security criteria for better site ranking. However, I have no clue how much this matters but we do have many who say their traffic dropped with the new Google updates.

    Sometimes you can find these things out better and quicker through outside sources rather than in WA. wpbeginners.com helped me with wordpress problems several times and I didn't have to watch long videos that didn't address the true nature of my problem

    Hey Stanley,

    Check out the screen print below...

    However, if you are referring to WA hosted websites, it is best that you reach out to SiteSupport with this question: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

    Hope you find this helpful.
