Google Announces Indexing Support for SWFObject-embedded Flash

The JavaScripted SWFObject is a popular way to include Flash files. Recently, Google announced better support for crawling Flash files, and in an update they added to their original post, they now also say:

For our July 1st launch, we didn’t enable Flash indexing for Flash files embedded via SWFObject. We’re now rolling out an update that enables support for common JavaScript techniques for embedding Flash, including SWFObject and SWFObject2.

On another note, Google adds:

At this time, content loaded dynamically from resource files is not indexed. We’ve noted this feature request from several webmasters – look for this in a near future update.

[Thanks Brian!]
