    I am getting pretty fed up with arguments concerning the subject of Flash and its disadvantages in terms of Search Engine Optimisation. Anyone who is competent enough in SEO and rely on experience of the subject – PLEASE lets put the final word on this:
    In terms of Search Engine Optimisation:

    Is it possible for the spiders to read flash content?
    Is it possible to get over the problem by having more than one site, and how will that help the ranking of the Flash site itself?

    In short, are there any miraculous ways of having content of the flash sites read by the search engine spiders (as advertised by some online U.S. SEO training courses)?

    I believe that the latest Flash creation program can allow you to supply information which the spiders can read, but you're still cutting out a lot of users and search engines.

    Having another site is just a bad idea - you may even get penalised for it.

    In short, yes, but don't bother.
