Sudden Drop in Google crawl rate after hours of CF deployment

Hello,

I noticed a sudden Drop in Google crawl rate after hours of CF deployment.

So I had to rollback the DNS configuration to my origin server and the crawl rate came back to normal.

Searching for solution on the internet, I discovered that many users faced identical problems, and the only remedy was to rollback the cloud-flare DNS config.

My questions now are:

  1. Are you aware of this problem, and is there any solution other than removing cloud-flare DNS entirely?
  2. Will I get refund for my ‘Business’ subscription after using your services for couple of hours?

Thanks in advance,

Yasser

That’s a normal change to Google’s crawler when the IP address of a site changes and is temporary.
