Why and How To Use Flash To Boost Your SEO
First, about Flash SEO.
Nowadays, it isvery hard to get flash seo correct, sinceg everything flash uses tags that the search enginesDiscourage having flash displayed in your website.
In other words, if you want to get traffic and rankings from flash based websites, you should make sure that you have the right amount of text and content on your website’s page, and that you have placed important keywords and text phrases in the appropriate places.
You should have at least 150 words content on your home page, and if you wish, you should have even more text and even more important keywords and towellword phrases.
The idea is to have a certain amount of text content and keywords on each page, and appear to be a normal website with a link to and from your home page to other pages of your website, and back again.
A normal website has many pages, and it is important that each page that you want to rank for, gets indexed by the search engines. By having important keyword text and a lot of different types of links, search engines willPage rank your website.
That means that if you are ranked #1 for a certain keyword, you should have more links than anyone else (including the company that manages to fix your flash database for you).
The reason for each page having a chance to get ranked is that each page is a separate entity. You have a single URL for one page, since it is singular. The search engines think of one page, when performing a search, and this is the page they are going to display. The different pages that the search engine see is what one page will show, and they will treat the links that you sendmen to your interior pages as separate links to those pages.
The idea is that each page is a separate entity, even though it is three or four down the line. We want the search engines to treat each page as its own website. We also want them to divide the number of links that point to that single page. We want a destination that has text links to all the other pages.
The planning stages are definitely the most difficult, but once the planning has been completed, the job is really half done. We now know what our site is going to look like, we know what pages are going to look like, and we know what links will be present. All we have to do now is to build the site.
The next stage, even though it is common sense, is often not applied. A website should be built to be useful to the user, in addition to search engine friendliness. If you think that you simply want to stand in the dark and let the search engines do the work, you are making a big mistake. You need to build a site that has a usability standpoint.
Your site should be easy to navigate and should be designed to be aesthetically pleasing. If you feel you need to change the site, it is perfectly possible to do so with little impact. It is important to understand that the search engines can’t read images. If you want that the search engines can read your images, you need to add alt image tags. The alt image tags should have meaningful text and are keyword rich. Try to use images that are relevant to the page that links to your site. The anchor text is the text that is displayed on the page if the link is a link. In case you can’t bother to add alt image tags, you can at least make sure that the image is related to your site’s content. This is the best way to use images to your advantage.
Keep in mind that search engines are tedious creatures. They don’t possess the intelligence to understand images and graphics. To them, they are just random strings of code. Therefore, if you are searching for a certain image, the search engine will index the image on the page, not understanding any of the content in between. To them, your image is just an image. I’ll take my pictures, and put them in the same file as the text. I’d still need the file name, alt tag, and caption, along with the appropriate link text. This is something that I would do manually if I had pages that were all images, but obviously, for the search engines, this is not acceptable. So, if you are going to have images on your site, make sure that you have a good mix with text and alternate text.
