Flash and SEO


Does anyone have any suggestions for insuring that adding flash to my website will not hinder my SEO efforts?

Google will parse the text and links out of flash. You still have a very good opportunity to hinder your search engine ranking benefits if you choose to encapsulate the entire website into one single flash page.

Some feel that 10 pages are better than 10 pages crammed into a single page. It really depends on what your end result is. To each their own.

Always best to keep as much content as you can in simple HTML/CSS markup but googles not dumb, they're pretty good at decipering flash too. They have to.... so it's not as big a problem as it used to be back in the 90's and early 2000's.

A description of your flash program offset the actual flash program will pull the best results.  Keep a keyword rich description say on the bottom of the flash program to explain the flash to both user and the search engine bots
