Flash, software, Adobe, Google, Yahoo, search engine, Web, Macromedia, photos, animationIf you're trawling the Web to buy a pair of Nikes, shop for a Volkswagen, or get a glimpse of Walt Disney's Wall-E, chances are you'll end up viewing graphics built with Adobe Systems' Flash software.

google was made to index textual data. it dosnt like flash objects because its harder to index due to google not being able to find the needed data. although resently google has updated its algorithms for indexing said data from flash objects and overall has become alot more flash friendly.
