sounds good. So long as it doesn’t result in flash .swf’s coming up individually as search results without the html page the flash sits on. Which is what happens sometimes currently.

Good find, Vahid. Hopefully it will open the door to more all-flash websites.

Although, even a special tool from Adobe isn’t going to help Google or Yahoo! index flash sites the same way as HTML sites. Most are just too creative for a web crawler to make sense of it; sort of like trying to have a web crawler make sense of what it sees in a video.

But even a small improvement will be great.

yeah theres a bit more about it here: infoWeek

It could be useless though as templates etc that fill the content via XML wont really get any advantage surely…

SWF Object 2.0 does the job just fine 8)

Adobe is actually working on a new Video standard, that pushes embedding meta information into video. Similar to the way, you can get info from a picture, like what date the photo was taken, what camera was used, exposure settings, etc. Except this information is made with the intention of being read, understood and indexed by search engines. Along with that, apparently theres some talk about being able to apply meta information inside of chapter markers, so not only can the search engine see what the video is about and what it contains, but also what the titles and descriptions of each chapter or chosen spot in the video is all about. Pretty awesome stuff!

Interesting.

No need to make a Landing Page for Flash sites. Good to hear.

Flash for All.
