Adobe / Google / Yahoo : SWF dynamic content indexed by search engines

Until now static content in SWF files (Flash Player file format) was indexed to some point by search engines like Google and Yahoo. Any dynamic content was not even close to be read by search engine, and developers worked with alternative content. Alternative content is content displayed in HTML page behind the Flash file, which containts infomation equal or similar to ones current flash page is displaying. Problem was that alternative content coudn’t be set dynamically and read by search engines as Flash file change it’s content without reloading.

Great news is, Adobe has came out with Flash Player which will be used by search engines, for now Google and Yahoo which enables them to get all content from Flash, going through it and retrieving the dynamically loaded content… You can read more at Adobe Developer Center

I think this doesn’t mean Google and Yahoo would be able to link to your dynamic pages directly, because there is no fake clicking capability in current Flash player, or time skip functionality. Something like that may be an option but for now I don’t think Google or Yahoo can lead  directly to your dynamic page inside SWF but they can be aware of your content and show it in search results.

This is surely a great news, with deep linking already enabled on your site this will work like a charm surely.
Thanks Adobe… And please keep this good news coming every month!

Singapore FUG June meeting [video]

I am almost 3 weeks in Singapore, and things here looks very nice. One of the things I liked is that here exists Flex User Group, and also some Flash groups. In Serbia we only have from time to time dinner gatherings.

So I went to June FUG Singapore meeting and I was very satisfied with the presentations and of course people who attended. Two presentation were given, one by local Arul Kumaran talking about Code Generation techniques and especially Eclipse Monkey, and other one, more interesting by experimental meaning is by Christian Moore from NUI group, group which is involved in open source multi touch library touchlib.

You can watch recorded live sessions and slide presentation on Singapores FUG website

Greetz to FUG SG, nice work!
