How to tell if your site is served via CloudFlare
CloudFlare is a fantastic service and as I was moving one of my sites to use CloudFlare this weekend I wanted to know for sure if it was being served via the CloudFlare network or still from my web server. With a little bit of curl and looking at some HTTP headers this is very easy thing to check.

Googe Cloud Platform doesn't support CloudFlare's free edge certificates
I've written previously about using CloudFlare to get a free SSL certificate for your site. That works really well in most situations, but it appears that when using the free edge certificate from CloudFlare, the Google Cloud Platform console rejects those certificates.

Get a Free SSL certificate and speed up your web site at the same time with CloudFlare
I've been using CloudFlare on my various web sites for a number of years now and the reason for using this service has just become even more compelling. Recently Google introduced HTTPS as a rank for website indexing which means if you don't have a HTTPS web site, you will be down-ranked in search results. For HTTPS you of course need an SSL certificate.
