    I believe It'll be a long time till Google actually starts doing this. HTTPS right now barely affects rankings.

    Furthermore when I added a SSL on my website I lost many ranking keywords and then it return at normal.

    That is pure BS to be honest. Will they give out that many SSL certificates. Where would they get that many IPv4s in order to accommodate SSL certificates for nearly all websites in the world. That might happen once IPv6 becomes the norm across all ISPs around the world as there are a lot more ranges and bigger ranges there. Till then, it is just not possible for the sake of practicality.

    No, I think you misunderstood this - if you have an http and https version of your site, Google will index the https version first.

    Although they are moving towards giving https sites a better ranking (which I believe they backed down upon recently), the article on Search Engine Land is clearly about choosing what to index on a particular site, not about where they rank in the SERPS depending on whether they have an SSL (TSL) certificate or not.

    What valid reason is there for a http and https version anyway?

    If you're talking about 2 versions of the same page you are shooting yourself in the foot anyway...

    So if you're retarded and google spots this (that you have 2 versions of your website), they will help you.

    But if you have 1 version of your website like you should its no problem...

    You are worrying about fuck all mate.

    As per this article, Google gives ranking boost to Https sites over Http websites. So it's that simple, right? If Google says do it, then let's do it.

    Having a HTTPS url on long time before couldn't be a huge ranking. It's helps little bit. Yes the small percentage to ranking improvement also huge for business growth.

    There after this recent update from Google, we everybody should think about to use HTTPS urls. Also it help us while on it long time run.

    Well, unless you implement and .htaccess file that sends all http traffic to the https version, then you certainly have 2 versions of the site.
