I need help

I have a flash/graphic intensive website that does not have very much text. I was wondering if anyone could give me pointers or ideas on how I could get it to rank well.

I was reading more about cloaking and was wondering how I can implement the IP address technology into my flash site. I was thinking I can have one IP address for the SE's that will give them a html web page. Another IP address that will lead people searching the web to my flash site. Both pages will be relevant to what the site is about, so I wouldn't be tricking the se's or the consumer. Does anyone know what I am trying to say and if so I would appreciate a reply.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, bakeryfresh :)

Cloaking to offer text version of pages for a flash-based website is common. It is usually done by having a script that gets the IP address of each visitor and determining whether or not it belongs to a search engine spider. If it does, then it serves a straight HTML version of the page requested. If not, then it serves the flash version.

Thankyou for responding to my question. I find these forums to be very informative.
