Week 2: 10 Things to do Before the Spiders Come

Welcome to Week 2 of Sprydev's crash course on site indexing...

Tip #2: If you have a flash introduction, be sure there is a link that allows you to pass it.

Many webpages have a fancy splash page, but no way to navigate around it. Google cannot read into a flash page, so be sure to include a text link to your website’s second index. Overall this type of intro can add to your site's visual appeal, but don't let it ruin your opportunity to get indexed quickly.
