Your Thoughts?

Hi everyone, as most of you know Google has been improving its Flash indexing capability starting last June 2008.

They recently announced on their official blog that the algorithm has been updated once again as of this Thursday. They can now index external resource files used by the core SWF file.

I think this is a pretty significant step. Actually, I predict that within a few years Google will be able to read Flash content as well as any text website, what do you guys think?

Flash used to be a big SEO issue, but it seems like its getting less and less relevant, I think this is a high priority for Google's search algorithm right now.

What do you guys think?
