|There is something special about a FlashR website. I don't mean a site that has a Flash header or gallery slide show. I mean a website made totally with Flash such as the beautiful site created by Lightmaker for the author of the Harry Potter books, JK Rowling. Her site is an "experience" due to the interactive elements but still manages to get the information to the viewer. |
Many people shy away from a site created totally in Flash because of the problems search engines had when indexing a Flash site in the past. Well, things have improved over the last few years and this book, Search Engine Optimization for Flash by Todd Perkins, dispels these old notions and teaches you the new methods to optimize your Flash site. When Perkins talks about SEO, he considers the techniques used to optimize a non-Flash website as important to optimizing a Flash website as Flash SEO techniques. Therefore, this book has a dual purpose. It not only teaches SEO for Flash but for non-Flash sites as well.
Todd Perkins is a web developer and consultant. As a Certified Flash Instructor, he has authored three books on Flash and many hours of video training.
