    Hi

    What will be the consequences if SSL does not get installed on a website?

    I'm not sure how it affects ranking, but it does make your website more secure and safe if someone visits it. I personally feel a lot safer if I visit a site that has SSL, especially if you are selling something like a service etc.

    Wordpress's move to limit features leads to a logical demotion from G on non-https links.

    Not all sites are transactional so logically do not require the cert so G can not blanket demote link value.

    With this information, we can assume Google will only ever (let's just say the next 5 years) give a marginal boost to https sites, and the OBL from those sites. It makes large-scale networks more complicated and expensive to build and renew but this has been the game since 2008 and in my opinion, the reason why there are so few majoy players at the high end of network ownership (pharma/porn/casino)

    So....

    If it is a single site, your money site, fuck it why not go for it, its a few $

    If its buying links, whatever, diversity is always good

    If you own the network? You know what to do.

    I believe, along with site load times, it does have an effect on SERPs.

    Thanks for the answers experts. I think rather than SEO it helps in making a site safer and secure.
