Flash Semi Indexed

Adobe opens Flash to Google and Yahoo so it can be indexed. Not sure how understandable what is indexed will be (vs semantically structured html page) and wetter Flash sites will need to be re-factored for a good indexation to be done. And of course, other issues remain.

This is a perfect example of the paradox of getting what you wish for. On the one hand, it’s good that Flash sites will be indexable. On the other hand, it takes away the “it’s not indexable” argument against basing sites on Flash.

The result? More Flash sites, even though the indexable thing is only a small part of why 90% of Flash sites suck.

It’s certainly not something I wished for though. I was for correct use of Flash, not for changes for it to become pervasive again ;)
