Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
that is sexy!

How'd you get the animation of the butterflies and such float around the page?


ALSO

Usually when I open a site, I click anywhere and use my arrow keys to scroll up and down the page.... On your site I'm forced to use the scroll bar because your entire page is 'clickable'

It's not a major problem, though if I was more dumb than I am - I would have thought the page ended and wouldn't think twice about scrolling down to see more awesome content.

Hi Jay,

Welcome to our forum!

Your site is real nice!

Is that created with flash? Will the search engines be able to index it and all the keywords in it?

Yeah, that's one of my problems. Flash or pictures look so much better than text.. but search engines wont be too good... So sad

OH WELL! lol

It's not either/or. Flash just makes twice the work for making a proper site. Allowing it to fail gracefully is something that just gets left behind because it takes so much work and costs a lot of money if you're paying someone to do that.

In general making an entire website using the flash plugin is not an optimum solution. There is not really a whole lot that flash can do that you can't accomplish without it.

I have a lot of animations and buttons which were made using flash. And most my 'art' content was made in flash but exported into a picture.

Text on my site is rare, but personally - I just want my current customers to enjoy and share my site... People randomly landing on my page isn't my goal yet. It might work wonders for gaining new clients, but I can list myself on other directory sites providing my website address, that's good enough for me I suppose.

I like to be crazy sometimes, the site is more for myself than to gain customers. Just something nice to look at lol.

Yeah, I understand. Look into Web Accessibility if you feel like it.

I've worked in the web site industry since 1999 (on and off) so I've got a lot to say about it but, unfortunately, sometimes it seems a bit harsh even if that isn't my intention.
