  1. Brad, great session today! I’m really looking forward to implementing your suggestions and enjoying some SEO improvements for my SL app!

    FYI: The link to your slides currently gives a 404 error.

    Finally, I found one of the few sources for SEO on Silverlight. It’s been quite a while that we’ve had issues with optimizing Silverlight with it being associated to content like Java and Flash.

    @Tim — thanks, i fixed my link.  Sorry about that.

    Awesome info in this talk Brad, you packed heaps into a fast slot, thanks!

    The only thing I didnt catch was around 15 mins in you talked about priority being not observed by bots so much but something about locations were observed and something about the last 3 links in amazons site map which id be interested to look at if you have a pointer to where this is found.

    If you felt inclined to elaborate on this topic a bit sometime I’d be interested to read more about it. I’ve added your blog up to my reader anyway.

    Thanks again for a whilwind talk!

    Very cool stuff.

    Is the div with Id="AlternativeContent" a standard thing ?

    I thought the practive was to put the alternate content within the object tag.

    Many thanks for this. One of the big challenges of search engine optimisation is working with technologies such as Silverlight, Flash and approaches to code which are so adverse to search engine rankings.
