          That's a tough one. Supposedly the engines can look at text inside SWFs but that's all a jumble, could be something bad through ActionScript as far as they know, and there is no way to use the tried and true HTML tag rules. Metadata is, I understand, pretty much ignored nowadays (thanks spammers!). Your best bet is some plain ole HTML text and solid incoming links. If someone knows better let them speak.

            You could set up your flash site inside hidden frames. One frame can contain hidden html w/ meta data, H tags, etc. And the other frame has your visible swf. This is also a good set up if you want to embed a statistics rendering engine behind the scenes. Unfortunately, nothing beats standards-based html sites for search engines though, A?!
