Flash Website: Having Website in Flash is SEO Friendly?

Having website in flash really looks very cool and attractive but search engines mostly Google does not read the content within the flash object, so it was worthless for having an identity of your business website with flash that can’t be visible to the search engines spiders and finally visitors.

But now it’s good news who likes to make their website in Flash. Google has stated to read website content within the flash since last couple of months. One just need to edit some tags in the body of the webpage and your content is ready to spider by major search engines.

Just add this below mentioned tag in body tag of your webpage:

<div id="contents">

Your content goes here


You may use H1, H2… tags and other formatting tags in between this DIV tag. You can place link in the content tags which can be crawl able by SE spiders.

Google is now indexing .swf (Swiss Flash Format) form of flash object in its database. So the days are coming for a flash website to be totally 100% SEO friendly.

However placing this tag can only index the content which is written on homepage, the content which has written in other pages by using scripting can not be crawl. It’s a great move for Flash website designers and lovers for creating and making their websites SEO friendly.

Basic of Website Designing (Part-2)

Here following are the remain points of Basic Website Designing.


As the web has grown, so has the types of people who access it and how they access it. As we say, it is impossible to please everybody. It is very difficult to design a website which will be accessible to all. Carefully choose your content and design, keeping in mind who your target audience is and what type of equipment they use. Equipment here means the computer and other hardware and also includes the software used for connecting to the internet and browsing it.

The best way to reach more people is to use pure HTML, and keep the use of scripting languages like JavaScript, Java, and other plug-ins to the minimum. While this may not make your site flashy,stylish or trendy, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your site is accessible to most of the people. Afterall, that is the whole point of this exercise, right?

Designing your website means knowing your audience and their requirements.


Now that introductions are over, lets get down to the core of your website: Content. The most important aspect of any website, content is the one thing that will keep your visitors at your site and keep bringing them back. The content should depend on what you want to let your visitors know - about the company, the products, the services. Keep the content interesting, updating it often for repeat visitors. Often this can mean providing more details about different aspects in your business, like seasonal discounts, etc. Your visitors will visit your site again and again if the content is relevant, and there is something new everytime they visit.


A well laid out website will be a successful one. Whether you design the site yourself, or outsource the task to a webdesigner like us, first layout your ideas on paper. Choose text, color and graphics carefully, they all contribute to the page load time. Starting with your Home Page, keep it fast-loading, with a good navigational structure. Try to follow the same layout for the whole website. Change the layout only for different sections and not different pages. If the navigation bar is at the top on your HomePage, keep it at the top in all the other main pages. Consistency in layout is very, very important.

These are just some of the basics about building a website. There are many more, some requiring a article all about themselves. Keep visiting, as I plan to write about as many as I can. Ofcourse, you are welcome to email me your suggestions/comments about what you would like to read about in Web Development.

What is the www or the internet? Basically a network of websites from all over the world you can access via your computer for which you require an internet connection and a browser. Internet connections are available from ISPs, and most of the popular browsers are free downloads from the internet. Just like writing/typing an address on a postal envelope, you type the website address in the browser start with http://www. and ending with either .com, .net, .org, .biz, .nz, .uk, etc. So if you want to access the adobe website, you would type in the browser and, you get all the information about adobe and its products and services on your browser. Just click on the available links and you are on your way.


Your website will be a group of pages all linked together via hyperlinks. You can ofcourse have a one-page website or as many pages as you like - depending on the amount of information you want to share with your visitors. Hyperlinks are text or images pointing to another page, just like the heading of this article points to my website.
