The Basic Concept of SEO
SEO or Search Engine Optimization is a technique in which all the textual data of a website is read by crawlers of the search engine. If the traffic of the particular website gets high and if it gets crawled more, its rank in the search engine will raise higher. This is very important for any website to grow in size as well as popularity.
Why is Flash not supportive of SEO?
The method of presenting animation and images on the Internet is commonly termed as Flash. As mentioned earlier, the crawlers of the search engines can only trace and read textual data. So, if a site has only Flash on it, then it becomes impossible for that site to get featured on search engines. Yes, there are many flash websites with high page ranks. But that requires twice the amount of work. First you have to do all the work in Flash then you have to do it once again in HTML to satisfy the search engines. You can avoid all these fuzz if you prefer to use jQuery over Flash.
Making jQuery suitable for SEO
Other Advantages of jQuery
The main advantage of jQuery is its ease of editing. JQuery keeps every single data in an organized manner and it keeps separate databases for your navigation menus. So, you can easily navigate to the data which you need to modify and edit it in a short span. If you animate using jQuery, the files will be loaded in a jiff but in case of Flash, the resultant file will be a .swf file which takes almost 3-4 minutes to buffer in a slow network.
Thus, we can know that jQuery is a better alternative to flash as it can provide Search Engine Optimization. This is one technology that was awaited for a long time and you should cease the opportunity to use it.
