Best Cloudflare Settings For Blogger Website (Free Plan)

According to research, Cloudflare will be used by 7.5 million active websites by 2022, and it will be used by about 3280 of the world's top ten thousand websites.

Regarding blogger CMS, 75%+ of bloggers use Cloudflare on their blogs. However, most bloggers need to learn how to configure Cloudflare to obtain better results without errors.

But don't worry!

Today, we will discuss all the essential Cloudflare settings that will be optimal for your website and explain why you should pick some locations over others.

So let's get this article started!

Cloudflare Configuration

We only discussed Cloudflare's FREE plan settings in this article, so if you have a premium subscription, please comment below for the next half of this topic.

We divided the guide post into eight sections:

  • DNS Settings 
  • SSL/TLS Settings 
  • Firewall Settings 
  • Speed Settings 
  • Caching Settings 
  • Network Settings 
  • Traffic Settings 
  • Scrape Shield 
  • Page Rules and Apps

1. DNS Settings

Everyone begins using Cloudflare using DNS or Nameserver settings; it is a basic but critical configuration for any CDN, so let's look into it.

DNS Management: In this part, you may add records to your domain name system that enable you to build subdomains, mail records, confirmation methods, and other features.

Proxy Status: Check the box to enable proxy for your domain, www, and subdomains.

TTL: If you are not utilizing a Cloudflare proxy, maintain a higher TTL so that your DNS information is cached and a lower TTL while moving to assist you with less downtime.

DNSSEC: It has nothing to do with it.

Email Security: If you're not using Zoho for your custom email, you may set it up and create a record from option 4 (Prevent illegitimate email traffic on your domain) to prevent someone from sending harmful emails on your behalf.

SSL/TLS Configuration

SSL Encryption: Use "FULL SSL Encryption" at all times since "Full (Strict)" settings will increase SSL Handshake time and slow down every request. (If you're using Blogger SSL, you can disable SSL in Cloudflare.)

SSL/TLS Recommendation: Depending on Your Preference. I usually leave it turned on.

Always Use HTTPS: If you are using Blogger Https status and reroute the HTTPS option, keep it disabled; otherwise, enable it.

Strict Transport Security (HSTS) in HTTP: This option allows you to Enforce HTTPS for your site, which brings advantages in terms of speed and security. However, this setting is quite hazardous, and I recommend you not use it since your site may become unreachable if HTTPS is disabled.

For optimum performance, leave all other SSL/TLS settings at their default.

Configuration of the firewall

The firewall configuration is one of the most critical aspects of any website, and everyone should be familiar with it. In the Overview area, you can see a list of users who have been banned or challenged by Cloudflare's proxy.

Firewall Rules: Using this feature, you may restrict your traffic and establish a custom rule to block or challenge particular nations, continents, IP addresses, and other things.


I recommend this option if you receive bot or unwanted traffic or wish to limit special access.

Bots/Bot Fly Mode: This mode assists you in protecting your website from known bots. It does this with JS, which slows down your website slightly.

Keep it Default for DDoS.

Security Level: Normally, keep it disabled, but if you're getting a lot of unusual traffic, leave it on and set it to I'm Under Attack! Make sure to reset this setting after a certain amount of time.

Keep it default if the challenge passes. It is used or set for a specific period to display a captcha or challenge to the same visitor who revisits your website.

User Agent Blocking prevents a specific browser or app from accessing your website. (Retain it)


Cloudflare's Speed Settings are the most important to grasp. Many bloggers need help with incorrect settings.

Wrong optimization and settings create many errors while using Blogger, such as blurred images, related or featured post thumbnail loading, and zoomed thumbnails. Therefore utilize these settings to achieve better results.

Auto Minify: Enabling all three options can help boost your site's performance.

Brotli: Leave it enabled.

Early Hints: This is still in beta, but you should activate it.

Rocket Loader: Disable Rocket Loader since it breaks JS Codes on your website and is responsible for most image-related issues.

Real AMP URL: It's a fantastic feature you should enable if you're using AMP since it helps to display your link instead of Google.

Mobile Redirect: You may use it to redirect mobile users to your desired URL.


Purge Cache: From this page, you may purge your Cloudflare cache. When you update your website, you should clear the cache so that Cloudflare can display an updated version of your site.

Caching Level: Standard is recommended.

Browser Cache TTL: Use the default 4 hours if your site changes often; otherwise, you may go for a longer duration, and it will benefit repeat visitors.

CASM Scanning Instruments: There is no need to set them up.

Crawler Tips and Always Online: Keep Enable assists your website in remaining online.

Mode of Development: There is no need to activate it, but if you want to circumvent the cache temporarily, you must first delete it before re-enabling it.


HTTP/3 (with Quick): This must-enable feature speeds up HTTP requests and delivers better performance and encryption than TCP or TLS.

0-RTT Connection Resumption: Disable it.

Keep it disabled, gRPC.

Always On Web Sockets

Crawler Tips and Always Online: Keep Enable assists your website in remaining online.

IP Geo Location: You should enable this option to filter traffic and create rules.

Scrape Guard

Scrape protection from Cloudflare Protects your website's content while also assisting in securing our website's data.

Obfuscation of Email Addresses: Leave it enabled to prevent bots from collecting your email on your website. It generates "/CDN-cgi/l/email-protection," and I'm aware that several SEO tools provide a warning on this page. If you do not want to see this page, you may turn off Email Obfuscation.

Leave it enabled for server-side excludes.

Hotlink Protection: Leave it turned off. Suppose you are okay with having your material exposed and freely distributed all over the internet!

Page of Rules: You may build a page rule from here to add a rule on a specific page if you want to avoid applying some settings on a particular page.

Regularize incoming URLs: Maintain Enable Normalize URLs based on their origin: It is advised to deactivate.


You can use the Cloudflare app on your website, but you must delete any apps you are not using.
