Google SSLIt has been about a week since Google announced their new HTTPS ranking signal and the security SSL certificate companies have begun promoting this fact to prospective customers.

Jaimie Sirovich shared an email on Google+ he received from GlobalSign, a security certificate reseller, about the ranking signal.
