When you connect Cloudflare with SiteSeer, you can publish your changes instantly – without ever touching code or updating your CMS. You can also take advantage of other integrations, such as creating dynamic SiteSeer sitemaps that live on your site and are automatically updated with Google Search Console.
Here’s how you do it.
1. Sign up for Cloudflare
If your site isn’t already on Cloudflare, you can sign up for a free account.
Once you have an account, you need to set up your site. Cloudflare offers lots of documentation and videos to show you how to get up and running.
2. Setup Up Workers
Workers are a type of code that allows SiteSeer to “work” with Cloudflare, but first you have to enable them.
⚠️ Note: To avoid free plan limits, we strongly suggest subscribing to the Workers Paid plan for a minimum $5 USD per month. For lower-traffic sites this may not be necessary, but it helps ensure no interruption in SiteSeer services.
If your site already uses Cloudflare workers, no worries. Please read our guide – Using SiteSeer With Existing Cloudflare Workers.
3. Create An API Token
Follow Cloudflare’s own instructions to generate an API token:
1. Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard.
2. Under the My Profile dropdown, click My Profile.
3. Click the API tokens tab.
4. Click the Create Token button. You will see the Create Token screen.
5. Next, use the “Edit Cloudflare Workers” template.
6. On the next screen, start by simply leaving the default settings the same. Then add permission by clicking “+ Add more” with the following parameters:
This helps SiteSeer to determine your Cloudflare usage.
7. Choose the correct “Account Resources” (typically all) and “All Zones” for the Zone Resources.
7. Finally, hit “Continue to Summary” and “Create Token.”
8. Important: Copy your token and enter it into SiteSeer. For security reasons, this token won’t be shown again. If you lose it, you can “roll” the token from your token dashboard and it will generate a new one.
9. Enter the token in your SiteSeer settings.
4. Enter Your Account ID and Zone ID
You can find the Account ID in the sidebar of the Cloudflare Dashboard. Select your site from the dashboard to and look to the lower right.
5. Hit Save
You have now connected Cloudflare to SiteSeer, and may experience all their combined powers and possibilities. Congrats!
