Cloudflare and search engines

Hi,
With regards search engine bots, would i be correct in saying they don’t know the servers true IP and location when a website is proxied through Cloudflare? So if it moves hosts, Google, Bing etc is not aware?
Thanks for reading!

Yes, you’re correct. When a website is proxied through Cloudflare, search engine bots cannot directly see the server’s true IP and location. If the site moves hosts, search engines like Google and Bing would not be aware of the change, as they only see the information provided by Cloudflare.
