Do they really want to make internet more secure or earn more money on certificates?

You can make your own SSL certs.

True, but SSL certificates are not only for privacy and security. They are also to proof you really are on the company webpage, for example bank. It is to fight with phishing. So, your SSL certificate should be authorized by "trusted" certificate authority. And it costs. In my opinion not every webpage require SSL certificate. For example static webpages like blogs. So why google tries to force them to get the certificate?
