I see better retention and higher amounts of signups from membership sites using working certificates for their membership area and signup forms. Those billing without certificates leave a lot of money on the table due to lack of trust. Customers demand their info to be protected. This includes a secured membership login.

However, I have never seen any significant uptick in traffic just because of https. At this time it makes no difference for affiliates imho.

I keep hearing https is better for SE rankings, but experiences from my webmaster friends don't seem that way.

HTTPS *is* better for SEO--even Google announced it like a year or two back that HTTPS would be used as a 'ranking signal' ( https://webmasters.googleblog.com/20...ng-signal.html ).

Thanks for the referenced article. I just mean that the people I talked to, that changed from http to https, have noticed no differences (at least not yet)

As for myself, it's still not top priority to get, although I do plan to start adding it to sites this year

It "can" be better for SEO provided Google sees fit for a TLS certificate for a particular site. It is wrong to think ALL sites are ranked by the same metrics of their algorithm. There are filters in place rendering various ranking factors useless to prevent people from doing SEO or spamming.

I have done some field tests and for free sites it never meant any difference. Sites that required logins, forms and other interaction with users saw a modest increase in SE traffic after implementing certificates. In essence it would be useless for a TGP or sblog, but a forum like asianwebbies could benefit from SSL, so would membership based sites.

Considering it only costs a few bucks a year now for an SSL cert, it can't hurt to make any site HTTPS-only from here on out.

Agreed. Actually, you can get them for free. The problem is to implement them on older sites that are driven by outdated cms. It can be a frustrating experience.
