As you know I'm always looking for ways to help Flash developers make content accessible to search engines. Today I received a link to a site claiming to have the answer to that age old question, "How to SEO Flash"?

A good example of this is Google's cache of "SEO Sample" portfolio 2.
Here is what the user sees:
