Google – Gallery or Blog

    I run a photography business and am using a Photocrati theme which, by default, selects a gallery to be my Home Page. However, I’ve been told that I should use my blog as the Home Page, rather than the gallery, because Google will see the gallery as just a lot of Flash and ignore it.

    Is this right? I thought Google was able to go into a site and pull out all the relevant pages during its crawl.

    In short, would I be better off having my Blog as the Home Page rather than my fancy gallery slideshow?

    Appreciate any help on this as my Google listing ain’t great!



    Oh and if you need to see what I mean about the gallery being my home page, go to:
