Just a few months ago Google had issued warnings to mobile searchers in the US that if they are trying to open a page on their mobile devices which uses flash, it may not work on their phones.

On Oct 7th, Google’s Pierre Far announced on Google+ that the warning is now being rolled out globally along with the language support to ensure that the message is displayed to users in their language.

Here is a screenshot of Pierre Far’s post:

The search engine giant will now show a localized version of the snippet for Japanese searches on google.co.jp, English queries on google.co.uk and Spanish searches on google.es.

Google also explained to advertisers that if they want click throughs from mobile users as well, they should stop using Flash. The universally supported technology is CSS/HTML/JavaScript.
