Just started with a new client. First step, without any other changes was to upgrade to a premium web host. Previously very slow on shared hosting. Upgrade inlcudes CloudFlare Enterprise CDN + Sucuri security suite. Since the move, impressions have dived around 70%. Any ideas what could cause such a thing?

It's probably something related to cloudfare. They might market well and be a good product but I've heard of issues before when moving to cloudfare. Check for seo related problems using cloudfare, have a Google see what you find to check.
