Benefits of Adding SSL to Your Content
The core of your relationship with visitors and customers is trust. You can develop trust with visitors to your site by enabling SSL and ensuring their information is secured. The visual indicators on an SSL-enabled website indicate to the visitor that you care about their security and are protecting their data from thieves.
Increased search engine visibility. Google now considers SSL in its algorithm and has declared publicly that a website with SSL may outrank a site without it.

What is SSL and how does it work?
When you visit an unsecured website, your browser establishes a connection with it and sends information to it in a public manner. When you fill out a form or enter your credit card information on an insecure website, hackers can intercept the information and steal your information.
A secure website with SSL enabled, on the other hand, creates a tunnel between the website’s server and your browser. Hackers attempting to intercept data are unable to get access to the tunnel, ensuring the security of any information you share on the website. The secure connection and verification takes place in the background in fractions of a second and has no impact on the performance of your website.

How can my site’s visitors tell if it’s safe?
Any website that uses SSL has some visual signals that are immediately noticeable. Let’s have a look at a couple of them:
When accessing a site that uses SSL, the URL bar in some browsers, such as Google Chrome, will state “Secure” and display a green lock icon.
Some websites, mainly eCommerce sites, will display a secure badge on their pages.
