    google can only see certain kinds of content in a flash .swf file
    it really depends on how it was coded
    also, unless your site meets a certain threshold of them giving a damn they won't even bother with interpreting the flash present on it since it requires a bit more processing power than the standard spider crawl
    at least that's what they said when they announced it in 2008

    Google can see and explore SWF as "thetraveller" said.
    Especially if your links are in a TextField (and not sent to via Actionscript's getURL).
