  1. Build Trust Among Your Customers

The purpose of an SSL is to protect customer information from online hackers and other threats.

By having this added protection, customers will feel safe making purchases. This is just another way to further legitimize your business.

  1. Maintain/Increase Your Google Ranking

Google will specifically target sites that don’t have an SSL and dock you several search position rankings for it. In some extreme cases, remove you from their index.
