“So as Google has put it, there is no reason not to have an SSL certificate on your site. To ensure that any website can afford it, we’ve released our AlphaSSL certificates for up to a 33% discount." Michael Roberts COO.

Web Hosting Company provider, Advanced Internet Technologies, Inc. (AIT.com), is providing its AlphaSSL certificates at a 33% discount in lieu of information recently that Google is using HTTPS as a “natural ranking signal”. It is believed that Google’s natural ranking for business websites will improve if there is the presence of an SSL certificate.

In a release posted in the Google blog in August, 2014, the writers talk about the reasons for the inclusion of SSL in the ranking formulas. “For these reasons, over the past few months we’ve been running tests taking into account whether sites use secure, encrypted connections as a signal in our search ranking algorithms,” says the writers Zineb Ait Bahajji and Gary Illyes. The article continues to say “We’ve seen positive results, so we’re starting to use HTTPS as a ranking signal.”

“This is big news in some ways because it confirms what Google is doing. We’ve known for many years that HTTPS/SSL is all about trust with our customers when they input their information and credit card into our own order forms. Our customers that use e-commerce or sensitive information portions of their site are using SSL certificates in order to help the trust with their customers. So it’s natural that Google would follow suit and ensure that this is added to their algorithms,” said Michael Roberts, Chief Operating Officer. Roberts added “So as Google has put it, there is no reason not to have an SSL certificate on your site. To ensure that any website can afford it, we’ve released our AlphaSSL certificates for up to a 33% discount. So there should be no reason not to purchase an SSL certificate to help one’s business”.
