As the internet prepares to finally bid farewell to Adobe Flash next year, Google has announced that it will stop indexing Flash content in its search engine.

In a blog post, the company's engineering manager Dong-Whi Lee explained that Google Search will no longer index SWF files, saying:

“Google Search will stop supporting Flash later this year.

In Web pages that contain Flash content, Google Search will ignore the Flash content.

Google Search will stop indexing standalone SWF files.

Most users and websites won't see any impact from this change.”
