    Title says it all. After google said an SSL could potentially increase your rank a few months ago, I am wondering if it's worth moving to SSL, and has anyone seen noticeable increases after doing so?

    Even if it does, few backlinks to the competitors will send you back to the same position where you were before. :)

    It's just propaganda to make you buy those certificates, it doesn't do shit. Why the hell would a simple blog have a certificate that doesn't deal with any sensitive information or transactions? It does not make sense. For other e-commerce websites, they have 1 anyway if they are serious about their business.

    well to some extend, i agree with your logic. But It is the same way if you have .com domain or a .tk domain. may be search engines rank SLL better on the same logic.
