Optimizing Flash Sites

January 3, 2007

Hi Jill,


Thanks for all your valuable information. I am working for a Flash site that is brand-new.  How can that be indexed and come up in the SERPs?  Please give some information about that which will be valuable for my site.


Best Regards,

Hi Inder,


You’re in luck! Normally I tell people to create an HTML version of their site for those without Flash as well as for the search engines.  However, High Rankings Forum moderator Jonathan Hochman has come up with a nifty workaround for optimizing Flash sites.


Hope this helps!






Update March 2011: Even though there are ways you can workaround your Flash site with search engines, we still don't recommend an all Flash site. See the Truth About Flash and SEO.
