method of formatting your movies and animation

Movies and animations are at the same stage like the images. They are very friendly to the users but are not SEO optimal for the search engines. Flash movies for site introductions are eye catchers but you can imagine how search engines will miss all of the embedded contents.
Movies and animation are ranking killers especially when you think of their contents being able to be explained or presented on text which can be indexed by search engines. Web designers go around this problem by providing search engines an HTML version of the contents presented in animation or flash movies. This way they can still be utilized by the site for better page rankings. Themovie files or animation files are excluded by the designers by using robots.txt so the website will not be tagged as having duplicate contents. Too much flash must be avoided until the technology of browsing through the movies and animations will be developed by the leading search engines.
