Recently Google launched a new ranking signal to give HTTPS sites a ranking boost (a bit), to encourage webmasters to migrate their sites from HTTP to HTTPS.

I am still not that excited about the whole ssl https thing. I don’t believe at the current time all sites absolutely need it or should switch to it. People will do anything no matter how slight the ranking boost may be.

Some sites probably should be using ssl, but there are still a lot of sites out there that I don’t think need to have it. I don’t see why a regular old static html type of site would really need one.

Not to mention even if you can find cheap certificates you still have another thing to purchase or renew. You also need a dedicated IP address. The cost for that is usually cheap, but we already have a shortage of IPv4 addresses. I know we IPv6’s now, but many people aren’t that familiar with them yet.

But, I’ll be waiting to see how it plays out for a while.
