Back to the Army, for 3 weeks…

I still remember this cold and foggy morning, doing some exercises. Morning at Army

This morning, I’m leaving again to give my services to the country, well I wished I could be more useful 🙂

Anyway, this blog will most certainly be muted until I come back, in May.
So, bookmark or grab the RSS feed and wish me good luck 🙂

Certification Exams Preparation Guides are Online

About a month ago, I checked the preparation guides page on Adobe.com for the ACE (Adobe Certified Expert) exam but none of the CS3 were online. Now this have changed and we can download all the preparation guides via Adobe.com.

That a good news as I have scheduled a test for the ‘Adobe Flash CS3 ACE Exam’ for the 16th of May 🙂

Does anyone know where to find other (free) preparation guides?

Tired of having my Blog Spammed…

Lately someone found a hole on my wordpress blog and use it to inject hidden links.
I was a bit reticent of upgrading my wordpress as I had customize it with a lot of my own functions but enough is enough!

So I’m going to reinstall a fresh new wordpress and say goodbye to my functions 🙁 Until I rewrite them…
It is totally useless to express my hate of spammers, finally they only use a security hole I couldn’t find and use to their advantage the algorithms of pagerank and back link of most of search engines.

This situation remember me the early ages of search engines where most of the search you would do would show unrelated content (with the meta tags abuse). Although search engines results aren’t as worst as they used to be more than 10 years ago…

Expect this blog to change soon 🙂

Holy Grail: SEO Model for Flash and Flex Content

The discussion about SEO (search engines optimization) and SWF content(from Flash or Flex) has been long and turbulent.
Fortunately this discussion is coming to an end as now a proven solution exists. I made yesterday a presentation about it at the Adobe User Group of Geneva.

Here is the solution I prefer: using XSL (eXtensible Stylesheet Language) and transformation (XSLT) to rewrite an XML files containing data used in the SWF. As a result we got an HTML file for the search engines and a SWF for the human. Not clear?

SEO for SWF via XSLT

This diagram shows how XSLT is central to all the work.

How does it work?
You will need 3 files:
1) a .XML
2) a . XSL
3) a . SWF
