I just set up a new domain for a site that will be a little different then what I've done in the past.
I'm not concerned with SEO as the competition is big, well-funded and fierce. For the same reason, I won't be using PPC (my forte).
I won't be collecting any information on site.
This will be an information site monetized with affiliate products. I will promote it "manually" which means posting on related sites, social media, etc.
My curiosity is if people will distrust the site if it doesn't have SSL.
For me personally, if I have no intention of entering any information on a site, SSL doesn't matter.
Would appreciate your opinions. If you were researching a particular product type would you be concerned that an info. site was not "secure?"
Thanks in Advance!
