How much do CDNs really help?

I've asked my host (HostGator) about whitelisting IPs a couple times, and they said they did it, though they've been kind of "cagey" about it. I have no idea how to independently verify whether they actually did it.

Also, I think I may have caused the 502 errors by making changes without going into development mode (it's HARD to remember to do this; I'm used to being able to just make changes to my site). The problem is, once I start seeing them I don't know how to make them go away without shutting off CloudFlare altogether. Is there some way to quickly fix this if I accidentally make changes outside of development mode without shutting off CloudFlare?

Hi Kelly,

The CloudFlare ips should now be whitelisted across all of HostGator (I worked with their team last week to get this done). Please do let me know if you see any issues on that one.

A gateway error, if that's what you're getting, is generally a problem on our end. We have had a few issues in our San Jose datacenter that may be a contributing factor (if you're doing work around the time we had the issues). Going to dev mode should generally not trigger the 502...where are you located?

The bigger boost I would expect would come if your site was responding faster and their crawler could crawl more of your site in whatever time budget they have allocated per pass. You can probably verify by going into webmaster tools and looking at the crawl stats.

I agree with this one. While I don't consider myself an expert on SEO per se, my understanding is that domain values probably take precedent over speed alone (links, age of site, etc.).
