Do SSL-certified sites appear in higher rankings? If so, what is the reason?
Google rank SSL sites higher. This is how search engines and users want, it is important for them to feel protected on the Internet. An encrypted connection is the main advantage of https, which allows you to keep user data safe. Logins, passwords, credit cards, addresses and locations will become much more difficult to intercept using third-party services for further use for fraudulent purposes. In addition, search engines consider this to be a positive ranking factor.
You don’t have to worry too much about SEO when switching from HTTP to HTTPS. Google has been saying this for years and says it’s a safe step. However, while doing this, you should avoid taking into consideration your traffic values by considering some steps.
You should decide the certificate you need: single domain or multiple domain certificate etc.
You must use certificates with 2048-bit encryption.
You should use the corresponding URL addresses for resources located in a similar secure domain.
You should use protocol URLs for all other domains.
You should learn how to change the site address by browsing Google’s site move guide.
Crawling of HTTPS site in robots.txt file should not be prevented.
As a result, we cannot say that you will definitely be listed at the top when you switch to HTTPS.
