    Can index engines see rolloover content?

      I have heard that indexing engines such as Google, Yahoo, Alta Vista can index flash nor can they index rollovers. Does anyone know the truth to these issues?

          A rollover as in an image? If so, an image is just that, an image. Google
          can only read the ALT attribute of the image.

          Google is getting better at indexing Flash, but if you care about
          accessibility (be it for Google or actual Humans) then using Flash in
          moderation is only a good thing.
