    Hey guys,

    I recently landed a local seo client and they want me to rank them for 10 key words or so, now I have experience ranking normal websites but have never attempted flash.

    So my question is:

    How hard is it to rank a flash website in the local seo market. Obviously I realise that competition should be factored in but just want a general outline whether I should even attempt this or not.

    Thanks for any help guys.

    Imagine ranking a website with No Content at all, only a few images without Alt or Title attributes. Or even worse, try ranking a site with just a few divs with different colors. You can set up the meta tags, title and so on, but even so, how hard you think it will be ranking this site?

    Now you realise how hard will be ranking a flash site.
    There are rumors saying that google can read Flash, but I really doubt about that, as I've never seen any flash sites ranking on #1 position

    you know - in general I can rank most any site

    the only failure I had was with a Photographer who had a Flash Site... no matter what I seemed to do just didn't work like a regular site would.

    It's hard to say because that's the only flash site I have worked on so it's not definitive by any stretch .. but I would not take on another one.

    cheers

    Of course you can bloody well rank flash.
    This is a subject that really seperates the "think they know it all" from the pros'.

    Do you have any tips I have never attempted this before your help would be appreciated. I don't want to accept the job if I think I cannot do it, I just don't want her to be my guinea pig to find out.
