If you want to run a site audit and monitor your site health using SearchAtlas, sometimes our site crawlers get blocked by CDNs. 

Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) are a group of servers that help deliver website content faster. If your website relies on a CDN to increase the performance of your website, then it’s possible the CDN’s firewall will block our crawler from accessing your site.

Resolving this issue is fairly straightforward and requires whitelisting the SearchAtlas site crawler. This post will explain how to do so on Cloudflare, as it is the most popular CDN provider for webmasters.

If you are using another CDN, the process is similar, and can still be done by following the steps outlined below. 

Getting Started

SearchAtlas uses one primary IP address to monitor websites:

  • 35.243.150.225

You will need to whitelist this IP address in order to run successful seo audits via SearchAtlas.

How to Whitelist SearchAtlas’s IP Address in Cloudflare

Follow these steps to proceed with whitelisting:

  1. Login to your Cloudflare account
  2. Click Firewall icon and then on the Tools tab
  3. List SearchAtlas’s crawl IP address under the IP Access Rules
  4. Enter the IP Address: 35.243.150.225
  5. Choose the action “Whitelist”
  6. Choose the domain that you want our crawler to have access to
  7. Click “Add”

After performing the above steps, SearchAtlas will have access to your website for monitoring.

For help and a better understanding of Cloudflare’s IP Access Rules, see Cloudflare’s support documentation.
