July 1, 2008

It’s been one of the biggest downside of extensive Flash use in websites but Google have just announced that they will begin indexing Flash content including menus, buttons, banners and self-contained Flash-based websites.

Read the announcement here: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2008/06/google-learns-to-crawl-flash.html

And they’re already making improvements: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2008/06/improved-flash-indexing.html

Flash is a fantastic tool but let’s hope we don’t see a big resurgence of the Flash-for-Flash’s-sake sites from the 90s.
