You could put your flash page into a simple html page, and use meta tags in the html page. It shouldn't take 5 mins if your budget can handle that?

Then put your key words in the meta tags, ie <meta name='the best socks in Maine'>

A lot would depend on whether dozens of other sock agents from Maine have the same idea? So it might not gurantee a result in the google ratings.

Look at other websites and see how they do this in the source code.

Some host provide a service which can enhanced ratings, I have not used this sevice it so I can't say whether it is any good?

well, also flash can't be run through by bots... so...

that means that your entire site will look like one page with no links, which means it will be ranked pretty poorly.

the only thing i can think of off hand is to have everyone you know and every site you've worked on have a link somewhere that links toward your flash site.

and, of course, all that metatag ish...

You wouldn't be able to use tags on the flash graphic, only the text in the html file.

u can make a index.html page that will have some texts about what is in your flash site, also there is a program which u can use to simulate the rank of your site. There are some tunning to increase the rating of the site ... but definetly u need a html page.

you could also create a sitemap that the search engines will look at.

You should use swfobject youll find it on google. you can present alternate html text for non flash users and google. This will allow you to add some seo friendly copy that will get indexed
