๐Ÿ“Œ Flash Finally Fading-
None of you are still using flash on your client websites, are you? FYI ๐Ÿ™€Google Search will no longer index Flash content that its crawlers find on websites.

“In an update on its webmasters blog, Google says it will stop supporting Flash ‘later this year,’ meaning very soon. Google Search will ‘ignore’ Flash content on web pages that contain any such content. It will also stop indexing standalone SWF (Shockwave Flash) files.” – Liam Tung, writing for ZDNet
