This question already has an answer here:

I've read than in 2014, Google will reward HTTPS sites in ranking. In the other hand, I have also read that HTTPS is slower than HTTP.

So, in my site, I just have a few HTTPS pages, so my question is: Should I put all my site in HTTPS, or just the few pages I need?

It's a myth that HTTPS is slower than HTTP. Yes, your site may be a little bit slower but this can be prevented. Please check out this article for suggestions.

From SEO perspective, it's definitely better to use HTTPS. As you've already said, Google will reward sites using HTTPS. You might want to read the official blog article from Google for more information about this.

  • If your site is a little bit slower then, no, HTTPS being slower is not a myth and, in fact, they are. However, as you said, Google gives a slight tip of the hat to HTTPS sites and the slight slowdown is worth the effort. – Rob Nov 12 '14 at 21:42
  • @Rob As I've already said, HTTPS is indeed a little bit slower but there's not a very big difference in speed - and it can be prevented. – William Edwards Nov 13 '14 at 7:09
