You are now able to enable your site with SSL Certificates.
Back in August 2014, Google announced that they will use HTTPS as a ranking signal for searches:
For these reasons, over the past few months we’ve been running tests taking into account whether sites use secure, encrypted connections as a signal in our search ranking algorithms. We’ve seen positive results, so we’re starting to use HTTPS as a ranking signal. For now it’s only a very lightweight signal – affecting fewer than 1% of global queries, and carrying less weight than other signals such as high-quality content – while we give webmasters time to switch to HTTPS. But over time, we may decide to strengthen it, because we’d like to encourage all website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone safe on the web.For this reason, we've decided to enable SNI-SSL to all our servers so that you can have an option to include SSL Certificate to your WordPress Site.
