Flash site search engine optimisation

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've got a little project I've been developing that I'd like to optimise, however, every word on every page is embedded in flash. Although the splash page is impressive it's invisible to search engines which makes the web site pretty useless.

    I could easily redo the site in HTML, but don't want to as I like it, so my question is, can I optimise it to a workable level?
    I know all the standard ways to optimise, but was wondering if anyone knew any special tricks for flash sites?

    I was thinking about creating an HTML front page only with the sidebar menu linking to the flash site?

    Any ideas?
    Cheers
