    6 Reasons Why Using Flash is a BIG Mistake - First of all...


    (Page 2 of 3 )

    First of all, I have seen some really pathetic attempts at flash intros. If you canít design a good one you should definitely not try at all.

    Second, most people search for the skip intro button and just click past it anyway. Or if you donít have a skip intro button, they just leave your website all together because they donít want to watch your useless and annoying intro.

    I know that they can be cool, that everyone seems to have one, but unless your website is already bringing in some big time money, then donít risk losing customers by using a flash intro.

    3. Not much Content
    It seems to be a common problem that a lot of sites that rely on a completely flash design are lacking in the content department. They seem to think that by having lots of cool, flashy elements and designs that their visitors will not notice they are lacking in anything substantial to offer.

    Make sure you have good relevant content in your website, the more the better.

    4. Search Engines Donít Like Flash
    Websites that are done completely in flash, all face one BIG problem. The search engines have nothing to index for your site. In your HTML file you simply have a piece of code that calls up the flash file to play. The search engines canít read this file or what is in it so they have no idea how to index your site and just skip right over it.

    You must have readable text and content if you ever have the hopes of getting in the top 10 search results. You will never ever ever get in the top rankings with an all flash website. Itís just not going to happen.
