Thanks for this video. You make a good point about flash based photography websites and analytics. Not only are most flash websites 'anti-SEO' but they also make it difficult for services like Google Analytics to track visits to invidivual pages.

This is one of the reasons why our sister company [3] built my photography website using good old .html pages, well using WordPress actually. This way each and every image uploaded exists on a separate page, giving search engines plenty of opportunities to index and rank these pages.

And as a result Google Analytics is able to track activity on each of these pages and give me rich information about who is visiting the site.

I have switched from a manully written flash+html website to a fully wordpress website, where the implementation of Google Analytics is automatic and quick.

I warmly suggest this solution, especially if you have to manage the website on your own.
