Site looking great but no hits from search?

 

 Do you have a web site that looks great but find you are not getting any hits?  Your site was set up to achieve some business goal but this is  not happening.  Let us say you are looking for the site to generate sales or customer enquiries but you not getting any.

You and your business might be suffering because your web site is "too flashy".

Some sites overuse a technology called flash or Adobe Flash (previously called Shockwave Flash and Macromedia Flash).  This technology in the wrong hands can result in your site being almost invisible to search engines like google.    Google and other search engines look at the words on the site in order to allow people to find it.  Incorrect use of flash can mean the words cannot be seen by the search engines.

One sign of this problem is that you are not getting the results you expect from your site.  Try to search for several words you know are on the site using google (http://www.google.ie).  If your site has been live for a while then it should come up in the search results.   Is your site hard to find?    If you are having trouble finding your site then how will your customers find it?

Another way to identify heavy use of flash to try to select some of the text in the pages of your site.  If you can't select the text then you may have this problem.

You will not get  visits to your site from search engines if your site has this problem.

The good news is that there are a number of solutions to this problem.  Why not give us a shout if you think you are suffering from being "too flashy"?
