Make Flash Sites More Searchable – 5

Posted by Sravan | June 13, 2008 .

The Ultimate Solution?

Ahmet Gyger has a wonderful SEO model for flash and flex content. Using XML, XSL and SWF for websites.

The XMLs contain HTML and all the data you use in your animations, with links to others XMLs. The XSL contains information about the transformation to be done on the XMLs. The XSLT will insert the SWF via Javascript (with SWFObject). The Javascript object will be an XML and its content will be passed to the SWF via a Flash variable.

The search engines will see HTML and the users see SWF.

The catch is that the XMLs could be filled with SEO-rich terms never used in the SWF, and search engines might categorize this under cloaking.

    I have an SEO solution in my Gaia Framework that doesn’t require a complicated XML to XSL solution and instead leverages just one XHTML file, the same file that embeds the Flash also contains the content that is indexed by the search engine.

    As a bonus, all the SEO is scaffolded for you in one click! :)
