It's oft repeated that flash cannot be read by search engines. I've just looked at a website that's entirely in flash. When I look at Google's cache it's exactly the same.
However when I look at Google's "text only version" it shows me a whole load of text which isn't on the homepage at all. The homepage in flash only has navigation, logo and a few images. The "text version" has about 10 paragraphs, not well written, including important keywords but not jus a list of keywords.
Has this been done legitimately or is is "black hat?" The web designer has about 30 or 40 other websites in a similar format which he has done for other businesses in the same sector as the website I was looking at. Is what he's doing wrong? Will he get away with it?
