Domain -> CF -> My server
Will Google be able to find my server IP or will they only see CF's IP?
Cf ip unless you are using their service like google ads, webmaster, or analytics
Nah you'll be cool.
Just set up two DNS.
(A) (Domain) (IP)
(C Name) (WWW) (DOMAIN)
Don't let your domain redirect to stuff like C-panel or Email. That can leak your IP.
Also, your contact forms/captchas can too so be careful. Keep it simple and you'll be cool.
Google can't see your real IP if you put everything through CF, including HTML.
That's mean have to use non Google email? Because contact form will redirect the mail.
Great, and I assume CF won't have any bad influence on rankings, rather the other way around, it can enable SSL and caching which should improve rankings.
No, what I mean is if you have a contact form, don't send a copy to the person who sent it.
As this will come from your servers mailing system, thus leak the IP.
Should be okay, I use it on a fair few of my local sites. It sometimes can hinder the speed of your site.
Can you give me an example of when it would hinder the speed of my site. That sounds very bad.
You do realise what cloudflare does right? It isn't come cape for hiding pbn's etc.
The DNS system filters traffic, meaning it can slow your site down. Not massively, but it can.
No they can't if you use a different IP address for your Host server. Mostly, people use Digital Ocean to get a unique IP address dedicated VPS server to host their sites
Sure, but if I use rocketload and caching it should speed up my site with the help of compression and caching.
Of course, I'm not saying your site will be crazy slow. I'm just saying it CAN.
One word, a big YES.
There are a few things you need to do to make sure your blog doesn't leak real IPs.
Can you explain how Google would find it?
Separate names with a comma.
