If it is a 100% Flash site then you probably will not get ranked for very
many keywords.  I know businesses that have spent 5 figures on their web
sites and don't show up in Google even for their own business names despite
some very strong backlinks.

Optimize the <title> so that they at least show up for their own business
name.  Try to influence how people link to you.  If your business name
is "xyz" and your URL is "abc" (no keywords or business name in the URL),
when people link to you with your URL as the link text it won't help you
much.  Try to get people to link to you with <a href="...abc">keyword xyz
company in location-keyword</a>.

Also make a link on the bottom to a section of non-Flash HTML pages.  For
example, add a WordPress blog at:

There is a rather lame way of doing it. Have a splash screen with
"enter here for flash version" and "enter here for non-flash version"

It is naff but would work.

Re: Flash Seo

I would personally build a html version of the site as well and leave
the visitor to choose between the flash and html version. If the
visitor is connecting with dial up they will want to go to the html
version. Plus the html version will be easier to index.

If you do build a site with flash they (Google and books I've read)
suggest to go with the latest version of flash to build it with. The
newer the version, the more search engine friendly it will be. Here is
a page I bookmarked that shows what a flash application looks like to
the search engines. (Note: type in the path to a .swf file)
