View Full Version : Dynamic Text (from .txt file) & search engines?!

04-26-2005, 03:17 PM
Now i know that Search Engines pretty much dont read any sort of flash, but I was wondering, if the text with a flash movie is pulled in dynamically from an external txt file, will that make any difference?

I've made a site for a client and he's doing pretty well on search engines... but we want the main selling point of the site to be in Flash, without losing his Search Engine ratings.

any thoughts, links and advice would be great thanks!

Doesnt search engines get there information from meta tags or something? You could just use them tags?

Sorry might be a stupid thought. HTML isnt my strong point.

How about dynamic text or xml imported text....
can search engines see that text?

type into google
flash filetype:swf

and see what happens.

Google does index information from flash sites, but only from swfs, as far as I know. So if you submit an html site with embedded flash google will look at the html tags, if you submit an swf, then it will index the flash.
Part of mm sdk, look it up on macromedia site.

Hope this helps.
