Do you have your own website or blog? What makes your site different from the millions that are available on the internet? There are so many people who have their own website or blog these days and it’s insane. With so many different websites at our finger tips it’s becoming very difficult to keep visitors on one sight for long. Websites have the potential to earn the owners a of a site a significant amount of money if the site gets a lot of traffic. As a result, publishing a website or blog is a very competitive business if your goal is to attract more visitors to your site than the next guys who has similar content. Unless your site has some amazing wow factor to keep visitors on your site, it’s likely users will navigate away from your page in under a minute.
Generally people ask me about how to increase website traffic or how to increase website ranking, but they never seem to ask me about adding interactivity to their sites.
After all, what’s the point in getting more traffic for a website if visitors immediately hit the back button? If you can achieve implementing unique quality content, ensure that your site is aesthetically pleasing, and make sure that your site is interactive you will have a substantially higher chance of keeping visitors on your site for a longer period of time; and possibly keep them coming back in the future.
A awesome way to add interactivity that looks aesthetically pleasing is to add Flash to your website. Learning to write good animations and forms in Flash can be difficult and time-consuming, so developers who know Flash are motivated to use it in every situation. But as with all technology, Flash has some drawbacks for many readers and putting up a site in Flash can be a detriment to the site rather than a draw.
If you are planning on putting up a Flash website, you should know both the positive aspects of Flash as well as the drawbacks.
This, combined with your knowledge of your customers, should help you to decide if creating a site in Flash or using Flash for particular elements of your site is a good idea. Learning how to write Flash can be a little challenging and frustrating. But it’s well worth taking the time to learn in my opinion, and there are many free resources available to learn Flash on the internet.
Flash is a powerful tool, but like every tool in the Web developer’s toolbox, it shouldn’t be used to solve every problem. Some problems are best solved with Flash, and others are not. If you know how to use Flash effectively, you can increase your page views and customers. I highly recommend taking the time to learn more about Flash before making a decision. Flash may be the tool that you were searching for that will give you an edge over competitors and help you get listed on google page one.
