Google Reads Flash

Lately, this blog has been less about Flash and more about me apologizing for it not working.

So here’s an interesting article about Flash and SEO:

Google Reads Flash Text, so Optimize It

This is a huge step in the right direction for Flash. For many years, one of the biggest arguments against Flash was its unreadability to search engines. And really, that was one of the few remaining arguments with any merit.

Now, while I think this is a big win for Flash, I also believe it will be a few years before this makes any difference. Existing Flash sites with no SEO will have to be rebuilt, and sites built by less experienced developers will still probably avoid this altogether.

Also, please note the feed URL has changed.. it’s now I think the GoDaddy ads may be breaking it though so I am searching a more stable solution.
