Very nice. I should include this in my directions and best practices for the Static FBML template documentation.
Yes there is already a lot of content already on the file pages, but what I would love is some sort of analytics/data of where people are coming from to get to my file. The ’ number of page views’ would nice as well. Keywords people are using to find the file would be cool as well, but they would probably be pretty obvious. A map of where people are coming from would be cool, but not necessary, except for aesthetic purposes
This would be great for obvious analytics purposes of: 1. How good or bad is my marketing on certain sites? Am I wasting my time in certain forums? Should I be pushing more in certain forums and sites? Were some marketing campaigns more successful than others?
2. Are there sites where people are talking about my product and I should be there answering questions?
3. And of course the “Holy crap – I did not even consider that site as part of my file’s audience, and that would be the last place I thought a link to my file would have come in, but now that I know”... time for action purpose.
Even if this was in the admin area of a file, I would greatly use this data to help me sell my file(s).
Is this already a feature and I am missing it? If not could I implement my own Google Analytics in the file description as a workaround?
Joking aside, ActiveDen’s SEO is extremely….potent. I would suggest using the file name to an advantage.
Example Search Google – “520px fbml”
Are you serious? #1 after 3 days?!? Above the Facebook developer forums.
Search Google for “facebook fbml template”. It is#3 Above Facebook’s wiki – Are you serious?
Use the title for SEO , not for pride.
Maybe there should be a wiki in ActiveDen to teach proper SEO for files?
Damn that sounds like a new business idea of which could make money.
If anyone needs ActiveDen SEO help, pm me.
It needs 3 users to rate the file before it appears.
PS: nice job with the template
PS2: maybe I will have a shot with FB templates. Can it have external assets besides the swf ? i.e. – xml, external images
Yes for FB you can have external assets. Just know that they need to have static urls or find a way in your flash code to pull the external assets in.
Not to push the template, but there are some very solid hints in the code to be able to use this file to create future FB templates.
Also keep in mind: Facebook no longer allows for iframing, which killed a lot of the initial FBML pages that had flash in them.
I also had trouble pulling in external flash elements in to the flash.
I could not find the answer by searching, probably due to the fact I had too much coffee this morning, rather than the answer is not there.
Quick Question: When does a file get the Stars rating? After it has had 20 sales? Or is after a certain time period?

What is day will it be on? and about what?
Could not find ANY 520px flash templates that would fit the Facebook format, and be easy enough for anyone to create and edit, so I created my own.
Very, very excited to be apart of ActiveDen as an author.
Necessity is the mother of invention.
Two posts a day for a week . I say he posts 1,000 on Monday, and my guess it will be, “Thanks.”
Since the 10,000th file guess is like trying to guess the Dow Industrial Average, I have one more off-topic competition with one definitive answer.
What day of the week will Lance Snider make his 1,000th post in the forum? He is currently at 986.
*Bonus Question – What will the post be about? i.e. New Feature, New Rule, Telling someone they are Awesome.
