In march I spent a lot of time in a deeplinking relaunch of my flash website www.heidikull.de
What’s new, what did change?
At a first glance nothing. My flash website looks the same as before.
But the big difference is that now users are able to use the back and forward buttons in the browser or even get access to a specific site by typing or pasting in the URL of my flashsite.
And last but not least this means an improved Search Engine Optimization for Flash, too.
Which wasn’t possible for years and was THE big draw back of flash.
But now each time you browse to a new ‘page’ within the Flash movie, the URL in the browser window changes. And each of the URLs is bookmarkable, and will take you directly to the exact content instead of the front page of the site.
