Question: Should I make a new web site. HTML or flash? I am not happy with my host. will that make me on the bottom of the list/ page?
Answer: Adobe Flash is NOT Google friendly, despite what you might hear. Google CAN index Flash but it does not LIKE Flash – so a Flash site vs. a text / HTML site, the latter will ALWAYS win. That said, you can use Flash for humans – it’s amazing and cool, but Flash is for humans. Text / HTML is for Google / search engines.
There are many great hosts. Many people now use GoDaddy which has many options – Website tonight, WordPress, and even a complete do-it-yourself package. It’s a large company with good customer support.
