Hey there,
I'm having a wordpress blog site that 90% its content of homepage is flash, it's too less text on it, I'm thinking it's reason why my site get low rankings on SERPs.
I would like to have any tips how to improve my SEO rankings for my flash site?

Thanks in advance.

Tips for Flash sites optimization:

1. Text on Flash Pages
Easy way is add text on your pages Search Engine can provider results for text use on flash pages.

2. Provide URLs
Search Engines can index URLs within Flash files

Example:
Code:
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<body>

<h1>Heading</h1>

<p>text </p>

</body>
</html>
3. Use HTML
Add content in HTML format to your flash files for it to be indexed by search engine robots. Each flash file have HTML page. Also, you must embed flash files into the HTML and add descriptive data to the site such as page title, header, image alt tags, anchor text and meta data.

Hi Pathfinder!

In addition to above I would also provide alternative pages to your flash ones with making sure to use the canonicalization tag to attribute link juice to the flash page... On the flash page place a link to state "html only page" whereby you can use this page to provide the details which will help search engines to gather a much greater understanding as well as visitors whom may have difficulties viewing the flash files...

For reference on canonicalization and how to use it within your html head code please check out: canonicalization explained. Its real important that you use this as this will ensure your flash page is credited properly with using the alternative page and plus it will consolidate the link juice coming in....

In addition I would also use a site map and if possible submit this to G's webmaster tool (that is if you are signed up to WMT)... For info on XML sitemaps and getting started check this out.

On that note best of luck!

Cheers,

Sid
