If I update my SSL through Cloudflare, will my SEO be effected?  I'm currently listed first and don't want that to change.

Hello John5334

No, it will not affect your SEO negatively. It can only improve it, since you will now have a secure site (although you can't really improve from ranking first, congrats!)

Hey John

A customer just pointed out that their SEO did drop when they set up Cloudflare. This is just because changing from a non-secure site to a secure site reindexes a page. Google will just need to recrawl your site, which can take some time to happen naturally. To speed things up, I recommend following the instructions in this article to request Google recrawl your site.
