The sites are mostly flash. However, you can import HTML snippets such as google maps, search bars etc.. I would say that the websites are 98% flash

 

feel free to ask any questions...

Ok, how do you get search engine optimisation with a flash based website?

Or how can someone working for e.g. a local authority view your website?

What about customers with a slow internet connection?

Hi,

 

You can add site info such as a description & keywords and this will automatically add to google etc.. this bit is easy.

If you want to get at the top of google results, I suggest you look into google ADwords. This can be pricey but gives you full SEO options. I do not deal in google adwords, customers have full control over this.

 

Search google for "Add URL" this also gives you the change to get into the search engines. some services do charge so just beware... There are plently free ones out there which have proved to work well over the years.

 

As for customers with slow connections.. Shame on them!! its 2009 why arent they on broadband yet??? --- however, If you have a slow connection and your pc or laptop is not flash enabled. Customers will see a low resolution version of your website and will be given the option to "flash enable" their pc/laptop - the low resolution version is html and is rare to pop up. I have known PC's with windows 98 to show flash sites okay (on dial up) but of course it was very slow downloading...

That works with HTML based websites, but your flash based site is essentially invisible to any search engine.

Good idea to have html backup - most business networks will block flash based websites. As for shame on them, maybe. I live in a rural area, and my 500kbs connection is as fast as I can get. Flash websites are a pain in the ass. Any potential customer who clicks on your page and waits longer than 5 seconds will go elsewhere.

You will have few problems with clients as generally speaking if they see a nice flashy website they are happy and most clients will know nothing about search engine optimisation.

Good luck to you and it's a thoughtful offer but one of my best friends is a web designer and is very scathing of flash based sites.
