Flash Ah! Ah! Content Is Now Visible To Search…


So here we have it the guys at Adobe have got together with Google and Yahoo and have developed ways to fully index Flash content without requiring any extra effort from a website owner.

Previously, search engines indexed the “static” text and links on a site, falling far short of capturing all the content.

Basically the web crawlers will trawl through all of a Flash website’s possible “states,” and make that content available through their search results.

This is a significant announcement for businesses that have considered building Flash websites, but didn’t want to sacrifice their search rankings which will remove one of Flash’s big drawbacks.
