    Thanks you guys for your suggestions, I tried to apply HTTPS for my websites but their rankings are just improved a bit, no more if compared to HTTP version. Anyway it did help to improve security for my website :) it is a good point to have HTTPS for website.

    Google has encouraged webmasters to make the migration to a secure site for a while now and has been giving an increasing amount of weight in ranking boosts to websites that are HTTPS.
