    I was wondering anyone using cloudflare if it had positive or negative effects on SEO.

    Thanks for your time.

    CDNs shouldn't effect SEO, Google even encourages them.

    If it speeds up your site that's a + in Google's book but I doubt you're going to see much in the way of SERP changes.

    I didn't think so. Been looking for some case studies or some people talking about this on a forum but haven't found much.

    Whatever makes your site faster can only be a positive I guess.

    Cloudflare doesn't affect your SEO in anyways. Infact it helps you decrease the loading time of your website which Google likes :)

    Not sure why you guys are saying it doesn't effect your rankings. I actually do use cloudflare and like it.

    Its a known fact that site speed is a factor, so why wouldn't a faster page load due to cloudflare help your rankings? From what I understand, it helps the google bot load your pages faster so Google will definitely like it.
