SSL is easy to do if you

1. force it on your servers

2. only include content from your servers

It becomes almost impossible to mix insecure content at this point.

Is it also easy with hundreds or thousands of servers around the world? Perhaps it's not particularly hard, but it's also not something that's thought through and implemented overnight.

If you trust your data center security it should be easy to deploy a single certificate to all production webservers. Much easier than doing the actual site configuration.

There are a lot of hard things to do when scaling, SSL isn't in the hard class.
