    CloudFlare accelerates and protects any website online. It will automatically optimize the delivery of your web site/pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times.

    You most certainly want to do this mod for Vbulletin (should work for all recent VB versions). I would also recommend reviewing these tips.

    I assume you mean visitors are getting hit with a challenge page? If so, the challenges actually do happen for a reason (the ip the visitor is coming from has shown bad activity online recently). You can, however, do a number of things if you want fewer visitors to see a challenge:

    1. Change your security level settings in your CloudFlare settings to a lower level (settings->CloudFlare settings->Basic Security Level->change to lower level).
    2. Whitelist the IP(s) the visitor is coming from in your threat control panel. This will override any challenge behavior.

    Note: Your visitors can still enter your site by passing the captcha ...so it isn't a full block.

    "ive seen it work good with some of my sites but not so much with others"
    How so? Generally speaking, most sites get about a 50-60% improvement in performance. Issues can happen, of course, but they generally have a root cause.

    Instead of your traffic going straight from your DNS server to your web server, Cloudflare sits in between and handles requests before your web server does - then calls big parts of your website e.g JS scripts and flash applets straight from your web server. It also can cache your scripts if you have premium :)

    It helps a lot with wordpress blogs.
