Reason Why you should not Integrate Cloudflare HTTPS on Blogger (Blogspot) Blog

I won’t argue that cloudflare HTTPS is the best but comes with a disadvantage for blogspot users, cloudflare free plan offers some really cool features like: blog catching, minfying CSS, Javascript, Html, Rocket Loader, etc.

Many blogspot users have seek to using Cloudflare to implement HTTPS Encrypting on their blogs, But as much web traffic is concerned it is not a good idea to use cloudflare on blogger. Why?

First lets remind ourselves what HTTPS is all about.

What is SSL?

SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This secure link ensures that all data transferred remains private. It’s also called TLS (Transport Layer Security). Millions of websites use SSL encryption everyday to secure connections and keep their customer’s data safe from monitoring and tampering.

Why Use SSL?

Every website on the Internet should be served over HTTPS. Here’s why:

Performance: Modern SSL can actually improve page load times.
Search Ranking Boost: Search engines favor HTTPS websites.

Security: Encrypting traffic with SSL ensures nobody can snoop on your users’ data.

Trust: By displaying a green lock in the browser’s address bar, SSL increases visitor’s trust.

Regulatory Compliance: SSL is a key component in PCI compliance.

Now back to the topic Why implementing HTTPS with cloudflare on blogger is a bad idea

Before anything I would like to tell you that Blogger have now enabled HTTPS for custom domain.

Many bloggers who use cloudflare complain of drop in traffic while switching to HTTPS well this is why.
