Ive only found old discussions on this but was wondering what people currently thought about EV SSL versus SSL and in particular if they think there is any benefit SEO wise in having an EV SSL.
Most of what I read says there is not but I have also read (from some good SEOs) that they have seen a benefit from an EV SSL). There was a link to a video where John Mueller says there is not difference for rankings between the two currently but there might be in the future (that was 2014).
So just wondering with HTTPS being something that is being pushed by google more and also that there is a new update if anyone had spotted anything recently to suggest that there is or isnt any difference.
Also, if anyone had one - did you noticed any increase in conversions? The SSL companies all push this as a benefit but I suspect that its all just marketing guff as your average consumer probably wouldnt even notice and it they did even know the significance of SSL anyway. Of course having "Not Secure" in the bar could well reduce conversions but having the green padlock or a greenpadlock and your business name is all the same Id imagine
