View Full Version : Is Google anti-flash?
06-18-2004, 12:54 PM
My client is claiming the Flash is preventing their stie from idexing high in Google. I am telling them that Google can't read the text in the flash but that Google is not discriminating against their site becasue it has some Flash in the homepage. Am I correct or does Google discriminate against site that have some flash. The site is http://188.8.131.52

Unless I am blind I didn't see any keywords in your source. I'd start there. Also adding alt text to the images is supposed to help.

Have you looked at the PR for this (SEOguy) site's flash enhanced home page?
I show PR8, which would be a good arguement against flash alone causing a problem in google.
Kewl, I was able to add a seo (http://www.seo-guy.com/) link for the new challenge. I suppose now you want that duplicated on some of my pages, huh Seo Guy? :D

haha yeah that would be cool hehe, I link to myself easily, its getting other sites that link to me thats hard.
Comova, the answer is as long as you have "some" content/html for the spiders to pick up flash is not an issue, its simply ignored as a source of spider food.
There is a lot to that site thats causing it "not" to rank, but flash isnt one of them

I still have "Mangeur de cigogne" and "nigritude ultramarine" on dozens of domains and more pages that I would like to count.
I guess I should check about when these end if I am going to look at making a change anyway.
