Advice to Webmasters Everywhere

I just want to give some advice to webmasters everywhere.

1. Not everyone uses Internet Explorer – check to make your site works with other browsers as well.  It’s very annoying to have to switch browsers to use your site – and unless there’s a real reason to use it, I probably won’t.

2. Flash doesn’t work on mobile devices – I can understand that you don’t want to have a special “mobile” website, but remember that in this day and age a lot of surfing is done from mobile devices.  Especially if your site is for a place that people might want to go to like a restaurant or a store, make sure there is a way to have your address and phone number accessible.

3. Google and other search engines only look at text – if you have a Flash only site, it’s not going to do well in search engines and you’ll end up spending a fortune to some SEO person to tell you this.

Thank you.
