I've put together a website using flash entirely. I've been researching how to get my site on google and i've been finding that flash sites are much harder to get noticed. does anyone have any solutions to this problem?

Make a HTML version. The problem is Search Engines are machines and Flash is visual. Search engines, Blind users or those with poor site, epileptics and mobile phone users... none of them can use Flash. So your really need a HTML version as well hand have that indexed.

Other than that, You have to put the Flash in a HTML page with Meta tags in it. But most indexing of pages is based on Content and header tags in the content... all of which you have burried in a flash movie it can't use.

So when you say make a HTML version do you mean design an entirely new site separate from the flash site I have now?

Exactly... That is why Flash sucks for web design... double the work. best is to have a HTML site with Flash elements so the content is still accessible. You can use a database and have the HTML & the Flash site draw from it so both sites have the same content.

Depends also on how you embed Flash. Using SWFobject embed method allows to have altenative content which is accessible for search engines.
