So I am tasked with my first Flash site ever.
I am trying to come up with the best way to index the content. The client will not budge on the flash part of his site.
First off I decided to embed the flash file into HTML, there are many reasons for doing this.
What I have been thinking about it is using XML to help me index the content. I have done a bunch of reading here and other places and it looks like this might be the way to go even though it hasn't been discussed really other then in theory... (at least that I could find)
With XML becoming more predominant I think it is time to at least visit the idea.
If I were to create an HTML page with a doc type of <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> and where the only thing displayed is the .swf file but then in the XML document itself there are these tags:
Do you think major SEs will see this more an RSS type of content and follow it accordingly?
What if I nest these tags in an <rss> tag after the .swf is displayed to screen?
It isn't cloaking and it isn't "hidden" content. I am wondering what people think of this.
I was thinking of using the title tag for title... the description tag for for all the content that is in the body of the flash doc for that page... and link tags for the outgoing links that live in the Flash movie.
Anyone have any guesses as to what this might do? Can I expect to yield some positive results from this?
This is a new site and I am not sending the indexers on it until I have come up with a course of action.
Any feedback or musing on what could happen would be greatly appreciated.
