HTTP security headers - do they have an effect on SEO and affiliate links?

    Hello,

    my site was recently moved to WPX hosting and the programmer fixed some site speed issued, plus he added HTTP security headers to the .htaccess file.

    The rating for my site is now A+ on https://securityheaders.com/

    However, I checked 20+ websites (from small to super large) and every single has an F rating (or at best a D) - even super big, multi-billion dollar websites.

    Why is that so? Fixing HTTP headers seems to be easy. Why nobody does it?

    Also, I wonder if this has any SEO benefits?

    Another thing I noticed is that while Amazon still registers all my affiliate links, the conversions have dropped from 13% to 3%. I had an issue like this before where Amazon would register the clicks, but the conversions were almost dead. It was due to their OneLink code, but that's another story. What I wonder is, could HTTP headers interfere with how Amazon registers links coming from my site?
