I’ve seen some other posts about cache percentage, yet still unsure about my own site and the results, specifically how to improve the percentage. My assumption was that a simple static site would have a high cache percentage with the right settings.
It’s a one-page site at the moment (ira.design) and I set up Cloudflare around three weeks ago. I am trying to get all this set up properly while I complete the full site that will be comprised of about ten pages; mostly project pages/case studies with a lot more assets.
Browser Cache TTL is set to “2 months”.
Caching Level is “No query string” because I do not use query strings.
And, I have a Page Rule for the URL set to “Cache Everything” and Edge Cache TTL at “a month”.
Past 24 hrs is 33.36% cached.
Past 7 days is 26.74% cached.
Finally, Headers response shows a MISS for cf-cache-status for all the assets.
Regarding the MISS, from the docs:
“Cloudflare looked for your resource in cache but did not find it. Cloudflare went back to your origin server to retrieve the resource. The next time this resource is accessed its status should be HIT.”
This ^ I really do not understand why it would happen in my case.
Am I doing something wrong with my choices and/or Page Rules, etc? How can I improve this?
P.S. I got an error that as a “New user” I am only allowed to include one image, so that is all I can add.
