Does anyone have or know where I can find stats on engine traffic for FLASH sites?

I need to compare the difference in engine driven traffic between a straight HTML/javascript driven site and a FLASH built site. Hard stats, not conjecture as to why FLASH sites may suffer...

(Example: Converting an HTML site to FLASH - how did this effect traffic? How did it effect engine indexing?)

Thanks in advance for any leads.

Hi kim. I recently went looking for some info on flash and was unable to find any myself. The couple of sites I thought should have it, didn't.

Thanks Brett.

Sooner or later we may begin to get reports on the effects of dynamically web enabling functions and how/if SE's can handle it. The world of B2B may pioneer this as they bring on board more technology to web enable the supplier/buyer process for things like industries. I even wonder how much they're going to bother w/engine submission and hence, the need for SEO...

There was a real nifty little scare a few months back. Very funny.

Seems someone was claiming top rankings by using flash pages. Of course I looked into it and flash's default HTML is setup to produce the following:

title, meta desc, meta keys, an object embed link to the move and ..... dum, ta, dah....

A large comment with every text word used in the movie.
If you used a word more than once it would only list the word in the comment once.

That's it, so if an engine favors nothing but title, meta and comments that page will do well, I suppose.

The buzz over that one has died down now.
