Update & Comments on HTTPS as a ranking signal and HTTP/2
Hello fellow dev/admins I was catching-up on several subjects about standards and the new HTTP/2 to start planning changes for next implementations of our platforms, and I was wondering how the drop of SPDY by Google and implementation of HTTP/s will affect on this specific topic HTTPS as a ranking signal . I been looking for info but can't find anything about this, so maybe you can share any information available, specifically about HTTP/2 requiring https/ssl and Google keeping HTTPS as ranking signal.
As far as I get HTTP/2 will still use http and https so will Google keep the stand about HTTPS?
Recently Cloudflare rolled out "Universal SSL: Encryption all the way to the origin, for free" and we are participating on the beta, and I have to say it works nice! with our Nginx servers and SPDY web sites and applications are really fast and with free SSL is like a win situation, but we need more information before we decide to implement this on mayor scale, off course SPDY will be available for a while, so we can still use it for some projects but will be better to think ahead and make an informed decision.
