Slow indexing with Cloudflare

Hello,

I have the problem that after I started to use Cloudflare, Google started to take a lot more to index my new pages on my website.

Before Cloudflare, indexing of new content was almost instant.

Do you know any options that can let me get better results?
I have already excluded home and sitemaps from caching.

Thanks for your help.

What comes to my mind is a way to manually ping the Google to index your sitemap :thinking:

Use below URL, just make sure to add your true URL of the existing sitemap:

  • https://www.google.com/ping?sitemap=https://www.example.com/sitemap.xml

I am unaware how Cloudflare could affect this, except if you’re using some of the security & protection features at Cloudflare dashboard for your domain name which somehow limits or restricts (blocks) request from Google :thinking:
