Within my G account; Diagnostics/Web Crawl analysis, our flash animation keeps generating errors. We use an iFrame to load a flash animation; the report keep advising a redirect error:

domain.com/page.htm?detectflash=false

Any Ideas?

Do you need the flash to be spidered? Are you using a swfobject for non-flash content?

You may want to disallow the swf file and have the non-flash content spidered only.

I dont require the flash to be indexed. We outsource the flash; so its setting in the flash animation that must be adjusted?

How about disallowing .swf files with your robots.txt file?

Disallow: /*.swf$

I wonder if that would help?
