Cloudflare offers under the topic “Scrape Shield” and “Server-side Excludes” the possibility to “Automatically hide SPECIFIC content from disreputable visitors.”
With the example:
<!--sse-->Disreputable visitors won't see this<!--/sse-->
<!--sse-->...<!--/sse--> Can I hide only 1-2 sentences or can I basically hide the whole content of the website?
a) For example, would below code snippet work?
b) Can Google bots, etc still read and index the content?
<article> My main website content. </article>
Why would you think only one or two sentences?
https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200170036-What-does-Server-Side-Excludes-SSE-do- seems pretty clear about that
Wrap any content that you want to be excluded from suspicious visitors
Does it not work for you?
OK. Thank you.
In the help-section under “Server-side Excludes” it isn’t that clear.
Then we come to the second part: can Google, etc spiders still crawl the website without any risk?
As long as Google is not considered a suspicious visitor, they should get the content as-is.
Exactly: can someone from Cloudlfare please confirm that Search Engings are not considered to be “suspicious visitor”
For that you might want to open a support ticket, but generally Google is not considered such a type of visitor
