It will be faster and more stable if you pay them fee for their service. vise vera you can get downtime if you use with free service or even some real visitors can consider as bots and must verify when visit a website using cloudfare.

Cloudflare provides content delivery network. It act as a reverse proxy and delivers content faster. You can get WordPress plugin to use cloudflare for your blog.

I honestly didn't find any improvement using the free service on one of the blogs that I own. That alone made me not want to pay them so I am not sure how the paid service would work.

Cloudflare Free Version Good For Blog - Pratwords.com
One important suggestion while deciding between free and paid services of Cloudflare is, if your website/blog is getting huge traffic like 1500-2500 visits/day or more, then paid service is advisable. If it is less , then go for the free it is good and economical for you.
I hope it helps

My blog sometimes gets 36k visitors a day so maybe i need to try the paid.
(though that is rare - probably 3-4k on a normal day)

If at any point of your blog's history you have received 36K visitors a day , that means your blog might be atleast 8-10years old and have high popularity and authority rate. Your blog's average visitors per day should not be less than 15K-20K atleast at present. You should have prepared for a high traffic like this long back and went for a premium CDN service like MaxCDN. This might have made your SERPs on Google far better than present (assuming you dont have any CDN at present). Let us know your blog URL.

Unless your trying to push content around the world Cloudflare it is a wast of time. I don't see it speeding up your site unless your hosting is terrible. To be honest it causes more problems than it solves.
I have seen itnslow sites down more than speeding them up.

Normal traffic is only a few thousand visitors a day. Its a missing person site so some missing person posts bring in alot of traffic. The site is 16 months old. A large number of the visitors come from Social media posts/shares.
The site is missingpeople.ca
Here you can see how the page views are since the site started.
(edit: I guess you can't really see it as an attachment but the highest block Sept 2014 is at just above 250,000)

When I started using Cloudflare I saw more downtime and slower sites. I guess you have to pay to see better results?

However I've since messed around with their default settings and have managed to speed it up... It seems higher the security settings the slower its going to be, so I've set that to medium and if hit with a DDOS I'll change it to max settings...
Another one and its a bit weird is that it parses the data looking for email addresses and obfuscates it... I know that as I use a self hosted autoresponder and noted that every time I added my support email it would replace it with [email protected] at the other end.... Drove me a little crazy until I realized that Cloudflare was responsible... You can switch off E-mail address obfuscation which is located under Security. Once done with revising settings I recommend that you purge the cache so that it can be rebuilt with the new changes... It may help...
I'm sure there are other settings which can be applied to improve performance and would be interested to hear of other inputs which may help.... Right now I'm happy with current website performance, but will be keeping an eye on that...

Cloudflare does have it's uses and benefits. You do have to know what you're doing and understand how the settings will affect Your site.
If you try to turn everything on to make your site as fast as possible, you're likely to have issues.

It really depends on the site, sometimes it will make a good difference, sometimes only minimal difference and if your really lucky, even break your site.

From my experience site speed is on both factors of how your website is setup ensure that your server is fully optimised to its potential, then when setting up cloudflare you will get improved performance. I have used both free and paid. With free being excellent for me i found that paying a monthly fee improves that bit more.
Free will give you basic protection and performance but ideally you will be best paying for the service to get the desired protection and improvements for your site to be fully optimal.

Yes, in some cases, that's right. Faster or slower are the matter of data canter location. But usually the Cloudflare CDN has a good loading speed.
