Optimizing Flash Sites for Search Engines

Mar 26, 2012 12:52 PM

My flash and HTML knowledge are relatively limited; so I'm not sure where the solution would lie, but I'm wondering how, since search engines use page content to index websites much more so than meta-data (Google doesn't even pay attention to meta keywords, as I understand) how can one optimize an entirely flash based website to have a higher ranking on a search engine?

 

Yahoo and Google can't 'read' .swf files with their robots are spiders (as far as I know, perhaps there is a way to encode this info) it seems like flash sites are pretty screwed in these terms.

 

I'd rebuilding my website and Ideally I'd like it all contained in a single document, the different pages being different sections in the timeline etc, so I'm wondering what I can do to help my situation. Thanks for help guys, you've all been great so far
