Why Flash Websites Suck

Flash SucksFirst off lets just say Flash at times can be useful, but for something large scale and as technology progresses it deems to be more and more useless.  HTML5 is said to be the next solution, but until it’s accepted by all browsers that would not be suggested for use.

html5 is better than flash

Just some fun facts, Co-founder, Chairman and CEO,Apple Inc., Co-founder and CEO,Pixar, Co-founder and CEO, NeXT Inc. Steve Jobs even made 6 great points on why Adobe Flash was not going to proceed into the future:

Steve Jobs

  • Flash is a closed, Adobe-controlled system.
  • H.264 is a “more modern format” for Web video
  • Flash would make iPhones, iPods, and iPads less reliable.
  • H.264 video consumes about half as much battery as Flash video.
  • Flash was not designed for touch interfaces.
  • Flash is cross-platform and not Apple optimized.

Steve Jobs concludes his letter by saying:

“Flash was created during the PC era — for PCs and mice. Flash is a successful business for Adobe, and we can understand why they want to push it beyond PCs. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open Web standards — all areas where Flash falls short…New open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML 5, will win on mobile devices (and PCs too). Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML 5 tools for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind.”
But lets just tell you a few really good reasons of our own, here in 2012 that we have found.  And we are sure as time progresses this list will grow more and more:
  • Search Engines do not understand flash content, therefor your site content is over looked.. Hurting your organic ranking and SEO and not allowing you to optimize it.
  • Does not work on mobile devices, does not look like this will change.. and with iPads and smart phones growing in sales.  This marketing is surely growing, and growing fast.
  • Longer loading time, might lose up to 20% of visitors due to this alone.
  • Bandwidth hog, Flash uses tons of server bandwidth .. and as you grow that starts to cost quite a bit of money.  Even with unlimited hosting, they server can only handle so much.
  • You cant bookmark a page, such as if you are inside a store on a very cool product you like.  If you wanted to bookmark or save that page, or even email it to a friend… you couldn’t due to flash being all inside one page… so you must start at the intro every time…
  • There is 100% nothing Flash can do, that HTML5 or Javascript cant produce better.
Fuck Flash

Also lets keep in mind the remarks from Adobe it’s self:

From the Adobe announcement ZDNet published:

Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores. We will no longer adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations.

How to update Search Engine optimization (SEO) settings on WebPaper

Search Engine optimization (SEO) can be achieved on WebPaper.co  for what we call “ON-SITE SEO”. The icon  Page Properties known as page properties, lets users set their website title, meta keywords, and meta description as well as the FAV icon.  All this will help search engines understand what your website is about, so you will get the traffic your trying to target.

Why is Search Engine optimization (SEO) important?

You want users who care about what you have to talk about, or what items you might be selling.  Why be ranked for something you don’t want to be, and get traffic from people looking for something else.  All that will do is hurt your website ranking and conversions but also give you false statistic data from users to see what you might be able to improve on so users stay longer.

Plus when you ask people in today’s market to find the best deal on a product or service, the first place they will go is Google.com or another search engine.  So be sure to add your website title, meta description and meta keywords as this will ensure search engines know just what to place you under.

Also in Search Engine optimization (SEO) keyword density matters, so be sure not to over use a keyword like a robot.  But do try to use it as often as you possibly can, do keep in mind duplicate content as well.  Search engines like Google.com and many others will punish you or lower your rank for doing this.  It means to simply copy and paste content another website is using, and placing that content on your website.  The correct way to go about doing something like this, should be to re-write the content in your own words.  This will not only help you rank better in search engines, but also you will notice some websites just seem to ramble on about nothing.
