HTTPS – SSL Certificates
Most of the websites we visit daily (Amazon, Google, Yahoo, Chae, etc.) are protected by SSL Certificates. Google wants increased website security. When evaluating a site’s position in Google search results, they take into account whether it has an SSL certificate, and they go out of their way to alert site users when a site is not considered safe (doesn’t have an SSL Certificate).

In Chrome, sites without SSL Certificates (non-https) appear like this:
