Once again, I got to apologize to the few of you who follow this blog for the lack of updates and posts in recent weeks. My hands are so tied up with work, friends, family, watching EURO and more work these days, I’m starting to wonder how other in-house SEOs squeeze out time to blog at all. Aside from that, I also don’t feel like beating any dead horse by spilling my two cents on every SEO issue on the horizon, since I’m usually late to post my thoughts compared to other SEOs who have better time management skills than I do.
So what made me want to post today? Well, the wait is finally over, the Google announcement of their new-found ability to crawl and index flash files really is a big news and relief to me. I really couldn’t count the number of times that I have had to struggle with designers and editors and preach to them about how the gorgeous, fancy, creative and eye-catching flash content and navigation are not going to sit very well with the crawlers and myself from an SEO perspective.
