I think you mean "will SSL be effective in SEO and Google ranking?" or "Is SSL effective in SEO and Google ranking?" The answer is yes. Adding SSL (secure sockets layer) certificate to the website will certainly improve the websites' SEO and provide a good indication for the search giant Google and help raise the website's ranking in the result pages of search engines.
