Flash movies are interactive vector graphics and animation for web sites. Web designers use Flash to create navigation controls, animated logos, long-form animations with synchronized sound, and even complete, sensory-rich web sites. Flash movies are compact, vector graphics, so they download rapidly and scale to the viewer´s screen size.

  1. The html file where the .swf file is embedded, must have a descriptive title tag and descriptive meta tags.

  2. If required, create below the embedded swf a text which you can hide from users but will be found by search bots.
    To hide text from users:

       <style type="text/css">
          .hideContent {display: none;}
    Your swf file can be embedded here.
    <div class="hideContent">

Duo falsis habemus honeste invidiae, nivem ostendit pueros quondam rationis, solida transferrem tribuat. Eius iudicant nasci numquid variis. </div>
