    Html comment code -picked up by search engine

    Hi Forum buddies
    As we all know, flash content is invisible to search engines, so I wondered whether, if the info you want picked up is repeated between html comment code ie: <!-- This is an HTML comment --> . If this would be read/picked up by SE's?
    regards

    So coolhead, would you say the best alternative is to attach/include a html version of a flash website to the uploaded website in order that the search engines pick up on all the text?

    No idea...... the best thing is make a page in html with double links ......... where the user chose if he want use (1) the flash version or (2) the html version.... the SE will pick up this last version....

    of course you need to create a completely new html version of the website...

    If anyone have others ideas please post....

    Re: Html comment code -picked up by search engine

    Hey cath, I'm a stickler for good SEO, search engines love it. Background is graphic design and used to use flash extensively but no more.

    My suggestion is not to have two versions of the same site if you're aiming to have an seo friendly site that is. Google and the other major search engines don't like duplicate content very much. Between flash based and text based design, they'll love your site way more without the flash. Also what exactly are you using the flash for?

    If its image or slideshow related, there are CSS, PHP, and other tools that can easily accomplish that now and search engines love them because they are text based.

    Let me know what you think.
