A couple of months ago, I started using Cloudflare on a few websites including this one and saw an immediate and massive drop off in Google Adsense revenue.
CloudFlare is a content delivery network and distributed domain name server service marketed as improving website performance and speed and providing security.*
Cloudflare denies that it will impact your Adsense earnings if their “Rocket Loader” feature is not enabled. This does not appear to be true. Since dumping Cloudflare, Adsense earning are returning to normal.
From botcrawl …
CloudFlare and AdSense
CloudFlare will destory your Google AdSense earnings. It’s 100% fact. There have been too many victims with the same problems and no solution besides to remove CloudFlare permanently and change back DNS settings. Not to mention all CloudFlare employees never provide any substance as to why this happens and will lie to you if ask them about it.
CloudFlare lies? Prove it!
Before we tried CloudFlare out we had some questions for them. We asked their employee Justin to clarify all the racket we’ve been hearing concerning CloudFlares responsibility in negatively affecting Google AdSense programs for their service users… truly all the negative talk must be wrong, right?… Unfortunately NO.
We know CloudFlare lies due to the reflection in our AdSense numbers which conflicts directly with their answer to our question below.
