    Interesting mid May 2018 enabled Cloudflare too. But you do know webmaster tools crawl time has nothing to do with SEO/page ranking according to Google it's just time it takes to for server to respond IIRC.

    Graph clearly shows my site is slow on Google Bot with cloudflare.
    I even have Argo and Rocket Loader Enabled on June.

    does your Google Analytics page speed numbers for the same period show such ?

    My GA numbers for May 1, 2018 to July 14, 2018 inclusive. From GA and my crawl times not much changed moving to Cloudflare for me

    With Cloudflare, I got 1-2 seconds average improvement though.

    Could be the speed between cloudflare and your origin server as a factor ?
