HTTPS for SEO?

Is it worth buying an SSL certificate purely for SEO? A lot of SEO checkers say that running your entire site over https gives a search engine boost, but I have nothing on most of my sites that needs it and it is an extra cost. With the growth of things like HttpsEverywhere and the current claim that everything online must be https, does it actually give any real benefits?
 
Yes of course, the benefit is there. Seo I don't know wheather https improves the seo or not but one thing is certain that customers get more trust on your product or service you provide. You will get an identity on net. You will get more sales.

Between https and content, your SEO should be much better than it was before that combination. The internet is like any other form of business though, the more money you spend on well thought out purchases, the higher your chances that you will get back a return on your investment.

It's a proven fact Google likes the more secure scenario. It has stated that it would give higher ranking to such websites. Therefore, if the ranking is something you're serious about, then you would get the SSL certificate. Anyhow, from what people have said on here, it's free.

Google is temporarily boosting the SEO value for the websites. As they are interested in making web more safe. And they don't want users to put their data on insecure websites. Once large number of websites move to HTTPS. I think google will no longer going to be rewarding for the HTTPS. Lot of things changing so it'd be fun to see how that changes.
