Google ups search rankings of encrypted websites; acquires Directr

Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is now giving better search rankings to Web pages that are encrypted.

The company hopes that its new search algorithm will make the Web more secure, and encourage developers to better protect websites and information.

Separately, Google's YouTube division announced yesterday that it had acquired Directr, an app used by small businesses to create marketing videos.
