Hi friends...........
I am planning to make a new website in flash. I know nothing about flash.... but planing to hire someone. But I have heard that Google hates flash.

@Javaid,
Google is getting better and better at flash, but there are still limitations and for the purpose of SEO plain text is easier to optimize than flash.

But you shouldn't be worried about Google, you shouldn't use flash unless you have a good reason to. For example, if you were publishing a video, it would be an obvious choice. Flash for no reason is bad usability and makes no sense but in the right uses there's no better way than to use flash.

So if you have to ask about Google at all, you probably don't need to use (and thusly shouldn't use) flash.

Agrees with Robert.

I hate Flash. It gives people the ability to make extraordinarily bad websites with little effort. If you have a very good reason to use it, do so.... but make your website in HTML with Flash content rather than doing the obnoxious Flash page thing.

A good website focuses on content, not on flash.

@Javaid,
i don not all site design should base on SEO.
The purpose of SEO is to bring traffic, improve the rankings, and bring customers.
at the end , customers decide the purchasing power.
So, when doing SEO, but also should pay attention to please the customer's favor, there is no doubt that flash is easier to attract customers.
what is more, now flash also can add personal links.

I think Google now knows what you are doing in SEO. they made the site. So they must know all information that we don't see in our websites.

@Javaid,
Yes, flash website will not be useful for SEO optimization, because if you flash the website search engine can't able crawl your website.
