Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
I was hoping that someone could guide me in the right direction of how to optimize for a site that is created entirely in Flash. Is there any code that I can place on the site to aid in my optimization? Any other tricks of the trade that I should know about? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
However, you are probably missing out on other engines, and the optimisation perhaps isn't that 'optimal' for google either way.
There is a way for detecting presence of a flash player, and in this regard I wouldn't have thought SEs consider it cloaking if you provide an optimised HTML based alternative with the SEs/primitive browser in mind. Yes, it's a ballache.
Invisible to me - I refuse to install it, as do many corporates:
And that was only November last year, the last so far of many vulnerabilities discovered in Flash. Why smeone would make a web site truly Flash-only is utterly beyong me.
Try a bit of <noscript> tags with optimized text. Has worked for me on Google for some years with one Flash site, though for any highly competitive area, again, it's probably a waste of time.
Flash is cool but it has it's drawbacks. I now recommend clients to have Flash "features" as opposed to complete Flash sites.
