As I've mentioned previously, how can you assume that SSL is the only reason these sites rank where they do? And, why some non SSL sites rank higher than other SSL sites? So, again, what data can you post to validate that these sites only employed SSL to rank higher and not any other factors?

You offer SEO in your signature, and yet you are not aware that SSL is, at best, a minor improvement factor that's not worth the time and cost??

More priority in HTTPS domain

Google gives more priority in HTTPS domain. Because this is more secure than non HTTPS domain. If customer are understand a authentic website then they all going with HTTPS domain. and admin are satisfied with your business.

Source for this? I have found plenty of non-SSL sites with better ranking than SSL-enabled sites with both having similar content.

Most customers I know, have no idea about https and have no clue to understand what it is, never mind why it's used.

Sites with https can have a little ranking boost but it doesn't mean they will outrank competitors. It is a very small boost and still websites without https with good optimization still rank higher than sites with https.

Precisely! Google has made it clear that it does help but it is a very tiny, tiny factor in their ranking algorithm. But the bigger picture is the goal is to make a more secure experience for users. Every year there is a new major financial crisis online, and sure, sometimes its a newly discovered flaw in a protocol as was the case with openssl way back, but in many cases some of the problems could have been averted by simply using https.

Yes. A little bit, because people and search engines trust HTTPS sites more.

Smile HTTPS helps website to get ranked

Yes, HTTPS helps to get better ranking in SERP, Since 2015 Google informed that HTTPS is a ranking signal, so HTTPS is a good ranking factor in SERP.

There are no proven statistics , but Google some time ago announced that it will provide a small ranking benefit to https sites. Small means VERY SMALL. They said it will only count as a “very lightweight signal” within the overall ranking algorithm. Google also said that it will have the impact on less than 1% of the global queries, so you can imagine how small the benefit is. They also said that they may look forward to strengthening this signal as they want to see the entire web on HTTPS, but I haven't heard any news thereafter.

HTTPS is going to be very important in coming days. Google has already said that it will give importance to sites which are using HTTPS. So to gain high rankings one must use it.

If your website has login option and collect personal data you must use https , because your website use http without encrypt , google will show your website in low positions.

False! Why would one login page "tank" the ranking of an entire site's web pages?? Sheesh!

False! If anything, it's a minor (I repeat - minor) thing.

No one at Google has ever stated it's a strong ranking signal, never mind saying it's "a good ranking factor in SERP". Sheesh!

Where do you guys get this stuff from? "Ive-made-this-stuff-up.com ??

Google prefers those websites that are fully secure. Google has officially announced that 'our mission is to provide safe and instant results to the users'. This clearly implies that the Google concerns about security.

Backlinko also did a study and found that HTTPS has more weight than HTTP.

So, It's worth having a HTTPS protocol.

It is not true that the website ranking is affected by HTTPS, but if the site is not having the HTTPS, it can be penalized during the next Google update in 2018.
