Upcoming chrome update with https and SEO implications

So obviously google chrome will be showing a non secure label for standard http sites soon.

I went ahead and got my whole site switched over to https, and I used a wordpress plugin to redirect all the http links to https. I now officially have the green seal on my site.

I’ve read mixed things about the SEO implications here. Some people say it will initially negatively impact rankings while others are saying its going to positively help.

I am preemptively building more links as I make this switch in order to give it a boost as I am worried about ranking drops.

Anyone make the change lately and have any useful information to pass on??
