    I posted a thread about four months ago about alt img tags and flash. I was curious if there is anything I should be doing with flash for seo. I have a flash show on each page of my site pretty much so it would be good if I could let google know what each of them are about.
    Is there anything I can do? Seems like even if you used an alt img tag that would help to let google know what it is about.

    as far as image is concern or multimedia is concern it is recommended that it should be used less because not good for SEO prospective but you can place image alt attribute and assigns the name of the meaningful image name, plus flash should be used very less and i think it can be optimized for SE, but what i have heard is give user option of flash and html so that html version of your website will have crawled easily. And due to internet connection speed this can affect on ranking of your website.

    Using flash content may looks pleasing to eyes but at the same time its not good for search engine ranking. I agree with James that go for HTML and use image alt tags where you can replace flash with HTML. It takes less time to load and you can also place keywords in tags and titles.

    okay, i have here a link which I think is useful to this thread.. I have read from a blog review which stated that using flash could be a spam but it really depend on how it is used.

    It is important to add content in HTML format to your flash files for it to be indexed by search engine robots.

    As far as flash and seo is considered SEO does not work on flash scripts images because Google does not read flash scripts or images.So keep flash scripting far from your websites if you using that site as an financial and seo purpose.
