How Well is Google Reading Flash Now?

It's been a while since Google announced that they were going to be able to index more flash within web pages. I'm new here, so please excuse me if this has been covered recently (did a search but couldn't find a specific answer to this).

My question is: Has anyone seen any evidence of this yet? It seems hard to quantify, with so much flash integrated into HTML sites, but I'm sure someone has been keeping a close eye on it.

What about flash only sites? Has anyone noticed an improvement?

I'd like to hear more on this too. I've taken a "Flash" approach to new website architecture to keep bots from indexing "too much". I know there are a few articles/posts floating out there that say Google is now indexing Flash. I'd like to know how deep. Are they indexing anchors as stated recently by Google/Adobe? I call them Flanchors. :)

Please, do tell, interested minds want to know.

Since 2001 [webmasterworld.com] :-)

I know this doesn't "fully" answer the question. What I've yet to see is a post showing cause and effect, demonstrating the results.

Thanks rocknbil :)

I'd seen both the July threads, (but not the 2001 thread LOL).

My interest is more about any tangible results in SERPS for flash sites...It's something that interests me, but I just haven't put enough time into tracking results. I just thought someone might have been tracking things more carefully than me.
