Where You Run Into Trouble
By and large using these technologies is completely fine, but here’s where people run into trouble:
- When their entire site is built off of Flash or their navigational menus are Flash
- Huge portions of the website are iframes
When to Use These
- Flash is well suited for videos, small interactive online games, and ads. This leads to another SEO point, don’t you want your videos crawled and indexed by the search engines? Yes, and the likes of Google are working on this but the technology is still at a very early stage.
- While it’s not perfect, iframes are often used as part of real estate IDX solutions. We say not perfect because you actually want search engines to see and crawl the listings for sale, but for most websites it’s simply not feasible.
