For Google, security is a top priority. According to the official news released by Google Webmaster Central Blog, Google has announced that going with HTTPS – adding a SSL 2048-bit key certificate on your site will give you a minor ranking boost. Google also encouraged all website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone safe on the web. Moreover, Google also said that based on their tests for the past months, sites with a SSL 2048-bit key certificate ranked much better than before in Google's search results. Now, Google is making it a reality to make SSL a ranking factor in Google's algorithm.
