    This week is Cloudflare Speed Week - this is it's first time launch where the whole week is dedicated to showcasing what Cloudflare is doing to speed up the internet and it's customers' web sites :) Cloudflare web acceleration has already shown to benefit alot of Centmin Mod Nginx users, so these new feature announcements are welcomed :D

    First up is Cloudflare blog post showcasing Cloudflare Argo and the new Cloudflare Global Private Backbone.

    As a pagespeed addict, couldn't help myself so enabled Cloudflare Argo for centminmod.com and all domains i.e. this forum :) Yes there's additional costs for Cloudflare Argo Smart Routing though https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000224192

    Guess I need to wait 48+ hrs before Cloudflare Argo Analytic statistics show up - querying Cloudflare Argo API
    Code (Text):
    curl -sX GET "https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/zones/${zid}/analytics/latency/colos" -H "Authorization: Bearer $cfkey" -H "Content-Type: application/json"
    {
      "result": null,
      "success": true,
      "errors": null,
      "messages": [
        {
          "code": 1234,
          "message": "Argo Smart Routing is optimizing 87.0% of requests to your origin. There have not been enough requests to your origin in the last 48 hours to display detailed performance data."
        }
      ]
    }
    

    Cloudflare Argo Analytics starting to show up. From my custom cf-analytics.sh script querying both CF Zone and Argo Analaytics for a domain

    this is Argo Analytics part :)
    Code (Text):
    ./cf-analytics.sh 24hrs

    Really cool to see those statistics.

    I would absolutely love to have it myself... I have a very international audience and I think a lot of my low cache rate is simply from the fact that people are accessing so many different edges. Unfortunately, it would take my Cloudflare bill from $25/month to $1k+/month. :(

    Yeah Cloudflare Argo is costly if you're not a for-profit site earning revenues to cover the cost but it is showing good benefits since I enabled it, so Google Webmaster Tools's reported Crawl Statistics show Google bot's download time has improved noticeably from May 14th onwards - when I enabled Cloudflare Argo from ~304ms to 178-180ms ! Which potentially means you have increased your Google crawl rate and Google crawl budget by >41% !
