If you want to Flash on your website, you will want to read this first. Flash is dead!
If you’re using Adobe flash? you will have serious disadvantages. You will want to be aware of the disadvantages of using Flash before you build your entire website with flash (we use CSS now). Keep reading to learn whether Flash can work for you and your website or not.
If you have spent any time on the Internet, then you have seen flash websites that really stand out and leave you amazed. (Now we are using CSS to do the same things) Text flashes by, flowing shapes dance and move across the screen, and every mouse movement creates a different response from the web page. this is the incredible power of Adobe Flash.
Flash has been around for quite some time now. But the problem is SEO and ease of editing the website, if you want to change something it’s very difficult and expensive to have a designer make changes
For me, Flash has its place like in small banner ads or some small part of the site you want to stand out.
But remember that search engines have a hard time to “index” the metadata for accurate ranking…so if you thinking of using flash …use it SPARINGLY…
Overall, it is hard to say whether Flash is a good thing for what you’re wanting from a website, or a bad thing because of editability and “indexing” from search engines. It depends on the individual situation that the owner of a website finds him or herself in. To determine whether Flash is a good fit for a website or not, you must weigh the pros and cons and then compare them based on the owners situation and needs.
