Does Google REALLY Rank a Website Higher If You Have SSL?
Well the good news is Google says that SSL security has a positive effect on its rankings:
“We’re starting to use HTTPS as a ranking signal… for sites (that) use secure, encrypted connections (and) we’ve seen positive results.”
– Google Online Security Blog
Now the thing they left out is, HOW MUCH do they use SSL as a “ranking signal”. None the less, Google is going to be requiring all sites to have a SSL Certificate installed or they will show your site as “Connection Not Secure”.
