Improved Google SWF Indexing Experiment

By Rich Tretola | November 15, 2010

Last year at Adobe MAX, Duane Nickull and I gave a presentation on SWF indexing and SEO. At the time we noted that although it would be awesome if Google would index SWF content based on the URL and the arguments after the hash tag (which is how deep linking works in SWF), it was not yet a reality. Well fast forward 12 months and it looks like we are finally on the right track. Google has announced that they will begin indexing deep links based on a Google site map. What does this mean? Well, if you include a site map within your application, Google will visit each of those links and index the content.

So, to test this I have created a new site at: http://richshatshop.info

It has many deep links:
Ex:
Cowboys Venice
Bengals 2009 Draft
49ers Basic

I have also uploaded a site map and submitted it to Google. So, lets see what happens!

</urlset>

It you would like to help out, it would probably help my chances of being indexed if you would link to on of the deep links.

    Interesting to see how this translates at Google. Please have an update followup of the results.
