"By caching static HTML on Cloudflare’s edge network, we saw a 70-300% performance increase. If your WordPress site uses a traditional CDN that only caches CSS, JS, and images, upgrading to Cloudflare’s WordPress Automatic Platform Optimization (APO) is a no-brainer and will help you stay competitive with modern JAMstack and static sites that live on the edge by default."

How is Cloudflare analytics different from Google Web Analytics?

Unlike Google Analytics, Cloudflare Web Analytics does not use any client-side state, such as cookies or localStorage, to collect usage metrics. We also don’t “fingerprint” individuals via their IP address, User Agent string, or any other data for the purpose of displaying analytics.

How do I add APO to my free plan?

Adding APO to your site is simple! Simply navigate to the speed tab within your dashboard, scroll down to the Automatic Platform Optimization card, and follow the instructions. For a detailed walkthrough, visit this knowledge base article.

Note: You will need a Business Plan or higher since APO requires a plugin to work properly.
