SEO + Flash

One drawback to a very Flash heavy site has been the inability of search engines to crawl the Flash content. Well, worry no longer.

Adobe (ADBE) has conceived of a way for search engines to index Flash content, even pre-existing Flash content, without the need for developer intervention. It’s made content encoded in the Flash file format (SWF), which was previously undiscoverable to search engines, discoverable–and it’s given Google (GOOG) and Yahoo (YHOO) the tools necessary to discover it.

I think this is a fairly big boon for online marketers--especially those brand sites that want to create very engaging content and micro sites to promote products.
