Ive seen lots of talk about the security around cdns but i was also curious about something else.

With The manner in which cdn;s like cloud-flare for example , store and serve data , are there any effects on your search engine rankings? I.e Does it effect google spiders , does cached old content get served if you dont cache flush after updates, and the many other factors i have probably not considered.

I have seen some clients with ranking drops restored after signing up and signing off. Yet for the most part clients stay the same and some increase f they have had a heavy static loaded site.

Cloudflare FAQ here says, it wont hurt.

But, one of this articles says it do.

However, the debate still remains open-ended, do share your experience here.

The experience with a CDN is not a one size fits all, for some it can have a tremendous increase in performance, but you're also putting your trust in the speed and network of the CDN, if their servers are slow some of your sites material may be slow also effecting PageRanking.

If you are asking if it has any negative effects, - then no

Since CF essentially speeds up the website, the rankings could only get better due to the increased website speed optimisation.

Like i explained the speed benefits are really only relevant to people with a heavy website due to multiple HTTP requests and not file size necessarily to these the speed increase may be beneficial ..

However on another not i have read a study that shows no correlation between dom loading time and ranking it does interestingly show one with time to first byte and ranking. This is why i opted cf. Its still very much plausible that in some rare cases cf can cause negative seo impact however ive seen it tested it , and read about it, it does seem extremely rare though , and nobody seems to know what the cause is.

The benefits from cf for me where almost nothing speed or ttfb wise , so i changed nothing by returning to my original name server except regaining rankings .

it would hurt your SEO as your URL of some files/pages would be changed to cdn url. If you buy premium service from clioudflare then you could have your own same url without showing cdn url. i hope that help

Personally I use cloud flare and have never had a problem, you have plenty of settings to change and you can even choose the browser cache expiry.

CloudFlare can slow things down, it can speed things up - it's just like any other tool. If used properly it does it's job. If it isn't used properly it can make things worse.

cloudfalre and same services absolutely don't have any effects ( positive or negative) on google ranking
i have 7 websites more than 4 years on cloudflare
with or without cluodflare your ranking doesn't change
