How SEO a site that's entirely flash?

Hi Everyone!

I'm working on doing SEO for a site that contains only flash across the entire site. I remember reading somewhere that a good tool to use in a situation like this is a frame that's a single pixel in size to hold all the content for the spiders to read. Does anyone have any comments on this idea? Is it a "ban-able" offense or no big deal?

Thanks!
Dan

Dan, depending on how 'busy' the site looks being all flash, I would recommend having HTML text links (using primary search terms) from the flash homepage that you can duplicate much of the interior content with good SEO using conventional text and graphics.

While I'm not a big fan of flash, adding standard HTML is a nice alternative for visitors (like myself) who simply want to quickly see the site's information without all the bells and whistles of flash - and yet provides enough content for excellent SEO that search engines can gobble up.

Apart from all fishy tricks (hidden text, hidden frames), I think your only choice are good backlinks with good anchor text.
