    If you've made your whole site in Flash, you can still have Meta Tags in the HTML code, but further? I presume that the spiders can't 'crawl' your site, since they can't find any links (they're embedded in the Flash movie).

    So... would you've got to submit each page individually?

    What you can do is change your front page into a framed page (Like your internal pages) but hide one of the frames. For example, once you click through to your site the frameset is rows="81,*", you can change this to read rows="1,*" or rows="0,*". This means the top frame will be hidden. In the frame below you place your existing home page, in the 'hidden' frame above you can add a totally content rich optimised page (which doesn't even have to make real sense as no-one will see it) AND in the frameset page you should have a <noframes> and </noframes> tag. Inbetween these tags you can add loads and loads of copy plus links to other pages on your site, search engines read this and index it so it all helps to gain rankings.

    Some search engines will not list your site if it is framed!

    You could always add 'normal' HTML pages to your site and concentrate your optimisation on these pages rather than the Flash pages. For example have an 'About Us' page, 'Testimonials' - make any excuse for an HTML page with plenty of content with keywords.

    If you've got too much time on your hands you can always create a non-Flash site, offer people the option on the homepage of using the Flash site or the Non-Flash (HTML) site.

    thats just wrong. Years ago there used to be a problem with search engines indexing framed pages, but that hasn't happened for a long time. All major search engines, Altavista, Lycos, Google, Excite etc will have no problems indexing a framed page.
