How to Install and Enable HTTPS (SSL) on Blogspot Custom Domain
Blogs that have HTTPS protocol will be more reliable and safe for visitors. Of course this can be a plus for your blog.
By default, Google provides HTTPS service is free for all blogs created under the auspices of Blogspot / Blogger. It's just that this service is active when the blog is still using the default subdomain, for example domain.blogspot.com

3. Things to Consider When Using SSL on Blogspot
