How we use your content in Flex and Flash Builder documentation

This post is intended for those of you who create articles, tutorials, and videos related to Flex and Flash Builder (although it will be useful to everyone). Apologies in advance for the bland title, but try as I might, I couldn’t think of a snappy one…


Observant readers will have noticed that over the last few years, we at Adobe have been working to identify and link to content that you, the community, create. Whether it’s an article, a video, a code example… whatever, we want to integrate with great community content. And I think this is a great thing for everyone:

  • Viewers – From our pages on help.adobe.com, readers have easy access to useful, hand-picked content.
  • You/Bloggers – Links from our pages on adobe.com boost your site’s page rank, making it even more likely that searchers will find your content in the future.
  • Us/Adobe – Scanning the community for content helps us learn what’s important for customers and identify who’s who in the community.

I don’t know whether or not you’ve noticed, but lately we’ve given even more visibility to your links, moving them to the top of the page, sometimes placing the link inline, along with the related discussion. Also, we are applying some visual treatments to highlight these links:

Pages that link to your content

Here is a partial list of the authors and articles we link to:

We’re always looking for articles, tutorials, and videos, so if you have something, please let us know by adding a comment to this page with your e-mail and a URL.

Thanks!
