    Hello,

    I was reading about Cloudflare and SEO that SEO may drop down when you are using a cloudflare as when you use shared coudflare IP you may share it with bad neighbors (illegal content websites etc).

    What are your experiences regards Couldflare and SEO?

    Any methods to bypass it? Besides to buy dedicated IP from cloudflare?

    It's a myth that has never been proven.

    There are some problem with Cloudflare and Google Adsense if you enable the "Rocket Loader" feature. Other than that, there's none that I can think of.

    There is no penalty for using Cloudflare.

    No problems here, using Cloudflare on centminmod.com and this forum and recently on my new blog at https://servermanager.guide/ :D

    I'd also think search engines should be smart enough to differentiate when a domain is using a CDN/web proxy like Cloudflare that the looked up IP is shared with other domains.

    Hi, eva2000. Great blog.
    Even it’s new, it already has a lot of useful information.

    Why do you use Nginx Helper instead of Cache Enabler?

    Nginx helper isn't a caching plugin it's a tool to help manage and purge caches for redis nginx level cache or php-fpm fastcgi_cache - which is method of caching I used on servermanager.guide blog.

    see Wordpress - Differences between Wordpress regular install vs centmin.sh menu option 22 install

    centmin.sh menu option 22 provides 3 full page cache options for cache enabler, redis nginx level cache and wp super cache. The 4th full page cache option I am working on is php-fpm fastcgi_cache.

    No issues so far for my site as well. Most penalties by Google seem to be defied all the time including the ones about back linking. The one that really stands is the penalties for PNB links as they are completely made up and it's a bit easy for the index to identify it. Moreover, if you have a site that sells products SEO will not be enough to boost your sells and a Google and Bing advertisement campaign will be of great use.
