No doubt, we can start making predictions, but let’s start with visiting the official websites of the top FIFA players.

Every time I start searching for any information concerning Flash technology and Flash websites, I only read: “Flash sites can’t be updated by owner, they need a flash designer for updates”, or “Flash pages can be slow to load”, or even “Flash websites are not indexed by the search engines and are not SEO-friendly at all”.

Full nonsense! People, you are living in the 21st century when technology develops by leaps and bounds. And all these points mentioned above are left in the past. Now you can create completely SEO and user-friendly Flash websites and provide your visitors with amazing pleasant interactive experience. Moreover, due to the content management systems built especially for Flash pages, you can manage your web sites without any difficulties and programming skills.

Nowadays, one of the most powerful and convenient solutions for Flash websites is FlashMoto Flash content management system. Flashmoto is an advanced Flash CMS that allows users to update text, images and SWFs directly on a live Flash website. Recently I had a chance to try FlashMoto, and would like to share my experience with you.

Well, once I logged into the system, I noticed that everything was clearly labeled. If you have ever worked with Photoshop or MS Word (I bet you have!), then working with FlashMoto CMS won’t cause any difficulty. Here is how the admin panel looks like:
