    I use Traffic Travis to evaluate my sites to know where I am in terms of onpage SEO and this thing about links in flash/javascript seems to have popped up out of nowhere or I must have been blind to miss it.

    It says: Link found in flash/javascript.
    Search spiders have trouble crawling and indexing links in flash and javascript.

    with a red X, for all the pages. Not sure what's up with it, I mean if search spiders have troubles crawling such links, why is it set up that way? It should display a green sign that the site is healthy.

    Can someone explain? I'm bit confused. Thanks in advance.

    SE can index and track JS / Flash links since like 2-3 years ago. While back in the days they had some difficulty, today it's a different story

    then you mean TT is not up-to-date with what's working and what's not?

    I don't see why I should have a link in flash/javascript from seo aspect.

    It's like: DO NOT LINK FROM THERE! -> I don't link.. -> links in flash not found, wtf is wrong with you? -> red X

    I just don't understand, something must be wrong with TT..

    TT is not up to date, I have issued many tests before to see if Google can index JS & Flash links, and boy it sure can do. Moreover, Google bots can even submit form fields with POST request to get more data.
