Adobe Teams Up With Google & Yahoo For Flash

Finally. This just in. Adobe will make it easier for search engines to index more content in applications built with its Flash software. As you know from my 2nd post, search engines have a hard time indexing Flash files. Now, with some "optimized Adobe Flash Player technology," they'll be able to "uncover information" in Flash files "that is currently undiscoverable by search engines." This is good news for searchers who now might be able to find more stuff on the web. Its also damn good news for publishers who use Flash applications: more of their content can now be indexed by Google than before, which will increase traffic!

A great move by Adobe. This will give companies and developers even more reason to keep using flash. Probably still wont show up in Microsoft Live Search as they have a competitor to flash called "Silverlight."
