Flash Websites

Just a reminder or a tip for those who may not realize this, but 100% Flash websites do not register with search engines. Regardless of what you might think, or what you might hear, if you create a website totally in Flash, you're giving up on traffic.

Besides the traffic that could come from Google, Yahoo and MSN, you're also giving up on some visitors that get to your site, but don't want to wait for the flash to load, or skip right over fancy flash intros. Even with DSL and high speed cable connections, Flash is heavy and takes time to load.

Best Bet: place the Flash elements inside an HTML page. The HTML content, metatags, and offsite SEM make the site lighter and search engine friendly. Look to Inspired 2 Design for the right advice on how to get the most from your print and internet advertising.
