Google Is Evil in a Flash

,----[ Quote ]
| What that means in practice is that one of the major downsides of using
| Flash – its invisibility to search engines like Google - has partly
| disappeared. That, in turn, is likely to encourage more Web designers to
| incorporate it into their sites – making the experience more like television
| than the Internet. Flash not only takes the control away from the visitor, it
| renders its content opaque in terms of links.

Google learns to crawl Flash

,----[ Quote ]
| In the past, web designers faced challenges if they chose to develop a site
| in Flash because the content they included was not indexable by search
| engines. They needed to make extra effort to ensure that their content was
| also presented in another way that search engines could find.
