comment Are there any disadvantages to Cloudflare’s “Flexible SSL”?
Thanks for this, Damon. I visited that CloudFlare page before posting my question, but for some reason it only contained the image at the time – not the text below with the warning about Flexible SSL. It does help to clarify things, though – thanks.

comment Are there any disadvantages to Cloudflare’s “Flexible SSL”?
Thanks, Jeff. My understanding is that Flexible SSL does negate the need for a certificate – you are not obliged to install one on your own server, so I'm not sure the first part of your answer is correct. It seems that Cloudflare are just saying that, for customers who want it, they will be offering a free certificate as an optional extra to enable full end-to-end encryption instead of the Flexible SSL setup where only one half of the journey is encrypted. If you're able to edit your answer to reflect that I'll happily mark it as accepted. If I've misinterpreted, let me know!

comment How to organize this site?
The question of subdirectory vs subdomain has been answered here before, notably: webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/1326/… and webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/12759/… Also see this article from a Google employee. It does not really matter if you choose subdirectories or subdomains; it is more down to personal taste.

comment How can Cloudlfare speed up PHP/MySQL?
It's worth mentioning that Cloudflare has a feature called "page rules" that allow you to serve cached versions of HTML generated by your web app on a per-page basis. If you want to serve entire static pages containing little dynamic content from Cloudflare instead of from your own server, you can do that. This is useful for About pages, FAQs, and even for busy dynamic sites that update periodically. Cloudflare is more than a CDN, so it's not limited to serving static images and scripts – you can have it cache and serve whole pages too.

comment Are there privacy considerations in using Google web fonts?
Sure, we can use chat for this. The question wasn't about security risks – it was about privacy risks. I agree that Google Web Fonts present little security risk.

FontFeed touches on the privacy implications of using Google Web Fonts. It's hard to know what Google do with the data they collect, but there is potential to identify visitors of sites that use Web Fonts via the user's browser fingerprint cross-referenced with other Google services they use such as Gmail and YouTube. That may pose no problem to many webmasters, but if you don't want to leak data about your users to third parties, it's best not to link to third-party libraries. This includes omitting "Like" and "Tweet" buttons.
