    Yes surely it does effect the seo

    i have seen sites improving in search results after adding a ssl to it

    ssl tells the search engines that the website is safe to use and so google treats you safe and rewards you

    you can even get a free ssl here https://www.sslforfree.com/

    Good luck

    As far as I know, https gives a slight boost in ranking. But as with it your website will be marked as secure, it will look more trustworthy to your visitors and they'll feel better protected. Especially if you deal with sensitive data, payment details, credit cards and so on, I recommend that you use an SSL certificate. The certificates by Let's Encrypt are highly popular. In fact, some hosts like BGOcloud, SiteGround and other include them in their web hosting plans, so you may easily benefit from these certificates.

    Actually, it's getting quite serious. In fact, if there is no https:// extention, there will be errors when people access your site from Chrome.

    No it will not effect SEO, it is a 301 redirect, so chances are it will not effect seo, unless or until you have any 404 errors, so double check the pages after enabling https on your webiste.
