Gary Illyes from Google said last week at SMX Advanced that 34% of the Google search results are HTTPS.

We know Google began indexing HTTPS by default back in December of last year.

But still, 1/3rd of Google's search results being HTTPS is a big deal.

Mozcast features shows it at about 32% right now. During Pete Meyers presentation, the HTTPS figure jumped drastically when went HTTPS, which makes for much of Google's first page rankings.

Here are some tweets from the session:

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Update: Gary did not say 34%, he said around 30%. I am not sure where all the tweets about 34% came from...
