SSL is (as Paul said) Secure Socket Layer.

When a website runs thought an SSL connection, you can often (if not always) see a small "lock" or like next to their web address in your browsers address bar.
SSL is used to secure the data being sent between the client (being you) and the server.

One of the most important components of online business is creating a trusted environment where potential customers feel confident in making purchases. SSL certificates create a foundation of trust by establishing a secure connection. To ensure visitors their connection is secure, browsers provide visual cues, such as a lock icon or a green bar.
To get a certificate, you must create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) on your server. This process creates a private key and public key on your server. The CSR data file that you send to the SSL Certificate issuer (called a Certificate Authority or CA) contains the public key. The CA uses the CSR data file to create a data structure to match your private key without compromising the key itself. The CA never sees the private key.

Once you receive the SSL certificate, you install it on your server. You also install an intermediate certificate that establishes the credibility of your SSL Certificate by tying it to your CA’s root certificate. The instructions for installing and testing your certificate will be different depending on your server.

An SSL Certificate issued by a CA to an organization and its domain/website verifies that a trusted third party has authenticated that organization’s identity. Since the browser trusts the CA, the browser now trusts that organization’s identity too. The browser lets the user know that the website is secure, and the user can feel safe browsing the site and even entering their confidential information.

SSL certificate adds the security to your all data over the internet. It will provide the data integrity. Also, it secures your details like the credit card or other sensitive information. When you are using any payment gateway like PayPal then it's compulsory to have the SSL installed on your website.

Sites having SSL installed on it have the more traffic, compare to the non-SSL sites.When end users see the green padlock while accessing your website on top left corner of the web-browser then it indicated him that it's trusted site. If there is no SSL then any computer connected to your server can see the username, password and other credentials on your site.When there is SSL installed on your website that time data on your website will be sent in encrypted format on internet so no can hack it.

So it's always recommended to have SSL on you domain.

SSL become main aspect in SEO ranking because clients used to trust and access the sites which are SSL protected. If your website is eCommerce site then customer used to do payments only with SSL sites. SSL sites load faster than non-SSL site so it's automatically increase the page ranking.
