Hi All, Would Google consider a UK site which is pulling in swfs from a US server as not relevant to the UK i.e. will it penalize us for referencing files like this?

Does anyone know?

I'm just giving an educated guess here, but something like that is quite unlikely to be considered a strong location or relevance signal by Google - they look at lots of factors. It's certainly not strong enough to say a site is "not relevant" to the UK, and most definitely it's not a reason for a penalty.
