If you thought Wordpress was only useful for blogging, you’re wrong. It also serves as a great content management system. And while Wordpress itself is relatively easy to set up for the intermediate to expert webmaster, it can pose a degree of difficulty for the novice. Not any more. A new service called Page.ly will allow even the most novice webmaster to set up a functioning Wordpress site with custom theme, hosting and email in minutes.
I came across an interesting thread over at Search Engine Watch Forums today entitled “Do Designers Hate SEO?” Forum member glengara questioned whether all-Flash sites should be used in the commercial web. An “all-Flash” site typically does not have any html text associated with it and many times is all contained within one file so that the site does not even contain sub pages. The problem with this type of site is that they are not very search engine friendly. Search engines cannot read the contents of the Flash file or files so they have difficulty understanding what the site is all about.
