SSL and Google Rankings

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”. So right now is a great time to purchase an SSL Certificate and get it installed on your site. If you have more than one domain name pointed at your Website that could cause a few issues so check with us, we can help you purchase a SSL Certificate cheaper than Godaddy! Contact us now!
