Just read on the Washington Post that Adobe is working with Google and Yahoo to make SWFs readable/visible to search engines. Completely awesome news! That’s been a major draw back for other Flash/Flex developers for years, that the search engines can’t read content inside a swf . The article states that this is a first step, it’s not a complete answer, but it’s progress.
I’ll have to look into this more as time permits. Is this a technology/API that we as developers work into our apps? Or, it seems from the article that it’s going to be part of the Flash Player itself in conjunction with Yahoo/Google’s technology so there may be no new steps needed to get your Flash/Flex app or website indexed on the biggies.
