                  It's not necessary but mandatory to have an SSL installed on sites which require the customer to enter their personal information and such.

                    You mean to say it is not required for sites which do not require one to submit his personal details?

                      No I would never suggest anyone to have ssl installed on their site if they are not acquiring customer data.

                        Would it still be possible if I am not acquiring the customers information but still happen to install an ssl?

                          If I were you I would not do it but if you still want to do it then I don't see why not?

                          Maybe, in future you want to provide any services...

                            Another thing you must have noticed is that Google has made it mandatory to have SSL installed on your sites.

                              Oh yes I forgot that part and guess what Google has started flagging sites which do not have ssl certificate installed on their sites.
