Flash is a very effective and powerful tool, only if used properly. We use this tool everyday for a variety of purposes, right from web banners to full desktop applications. As far as using Flash for your website is concerned, it can be used in the following ways:
  • Flash can be used for secondary objects like a banner, animation or an image gallery.
  • As far as SEO is concerned, it is very important to note that when adding Flash you should also use the correct codes to embed files so as to ensure that your web pages all comply with w3c standards.
  • Using Flash can allow designers to create great media-rich sites that attract and engage visitors.
  • However, when using Flash, sites tend to be limited as far as text is concerned.
  • It is very difficult to optimize Flash text.
These above points can be gathered as the pros and cons. However, everything depends on how you use Flash.
