Programming Languages and SEO: Part 2 – Flash

As promised I will be covering the programming languages in terms of SEO findings that whether that programming language is fair use for seo methods.

Therefore, this is the part 2 of the topic and here I am covering about flash.

Flash Use
Flash is another of those technologies that some users absolutely hate. That’s because Flash, though very cool, is resource intensive. It causes pages to load slower, and users often get stuck on an opening Flash page and can’t move forward until the Flash has finished executing. If the user is in a hurry, it’s a frustrating thing to deal with.

Flash is also a nightmare when it comes to SEO. A Flash page can stop a web crawler in its tracks, and once stopped, the crawler won’t resume indexing the site. Instead, it will simply move on to the next web site on its list.

Solution
The easiest way to overcome Flash problems is simply not use it. But despite the difficulties with search rankings, some organizations need to use Flash. If yours is one of them, the Flash can be coded in HTML and an option can be added to test for the ability to see Flash before the Flash is executed.

However, there’s some debate over whether or not this is an “acceptable” SEO practice, so before you implement this type of strategy in an effort to improve your SEO effectiveness, take the time to research the method.
