    How can i do onsite SEO on a flash based website? any guides??

    Does google successfully crawl flash sites these days?

    Possible to rank high? or does being flash based make ranking high much more difficult?

    Cheers

    I am too willing to know the same thing. As I heard some times back that google has started crawling flash sites but have some different criteria to do onpage for flash based sites but didn't know what are those?

    thanks

    I really recommend that you don't use Flash if you want to rank high. It doesn't mean that you can't rank them, but it'll be a lot harder.

    There is many factors that come into that question. I have created a wordpress landing site with my flash as a link. My rankings increased dramatically once I got away from flash being my only site page.

    Good luck to you my friend...

    If it's totally a flash website then is it possible to convert it to a html with some flash elements, like leave the header and menu as flash for instance? Obviously the problem with a total flash site is that any text content is not seen by the search engines. One possible solution is to include your text again but in a div that using css is not normally visible to humans, but can be read by the search engines, not ideal though.
