    6 Reasons Why Using Flash is a BIG Mistake - Flash Headers and...

    (Page 3 of 3 )

    5. Flash Headers and Navigation
    Some websites have the header portion of their sites display a cool flash picture or have there navigational buttons done in flash. You can get away with this if you have lots of other good quality content for the search engines to read.

    If you use a flash based navigation, include links to your other pages within the body of your text as well as text links at the bottom of the page. Search engines wonít be able to read the flash navigation and wonít know there are any other pages to index if you donít also have the text links in place.

    6. No Plugin
    Some internet users donít even have the Flash plugin installed on their computer. Some people donít like to download anything from the internet or have never even heard of flash. If they donít have the plugin then your site wonít even be visible to them. Even if you put a script up to tell them to go get the Flash plugin, most people wonít even bother. This is just another annoying problem to a potential customer.

    Now you are armed with proof that using flash in your website is a very stupid thing to do if you want to make any money. If your web designer insists on trying to convince you otherwise, then print out this article and smack him over the head with it. If he still wonít listen then find a new designer.
