Is this url name unable to be indexed by the SE's?

companyname.webhostname.com not on SE's

Hi everyone,
I am trying to help a friend out. Their group is nowhere to be found on the se's. They created their (flash) site with the webhostname's site builder. There is no way to get in there to modify/add/change title and meta tags via ftp or an online html editor. (it's a click and point no html needed site builder).

I was told by the webhost tech support that they regularly submit all their host sites (which are all flash) to the SE's, and the basic jist of the message was that they know what they are doing.

I ran Top Dog and their domain did not come up anywhere on any SE. This was using the companyname.webhostname.com, which is the minimal level of listing.

Before I propose my alternative solution to my pals, I want to verify that there isn't something that I am missing that can be done.

Thanks in advance!

However, I'm not confident in TopDog. It consitently says that one of my new sites is not indexed, when in fact the SE's own listing shows the URL nd the server logs indicte the site has been spidered numerous times.

the fact thats its a companyname.hostname.com url shouldnt be a prob as such, the first site I ever did (which admittedly does need a rework now!) is just like that, using xoasis as the freebie host, and its ranking excellently.

I think your friends problem hinges around the site being a)largely flash content b)with uneditable html, sounds like you might have problems there!
