Today, Google officially announced that using a secure https:// connection (achieved through the use of a SSL Certificate) increases the ranking of your site in its results.
For some time, many in the SEO community have suspected that using a secure https:// connection had benefits. Matt Cutts, the head of the Webspam team at Google, and currently on extended leave, previously suggested he’d like all sites to use a secure connection where necessary. And this announcement, just a couple of months later, proves that Google is starting to use the presence of a secure https:// connection as a ranking factor.
