    how to avoid google scaning swf's ??

    Hi,

    google appears to scan swf files now, this means that on some searches, i will find my sites but with the direct swf file url and not the index html page .. is there a way to avoid this (maybe some sort of meta tag) ?

    thanks for your help!

    That seems unlikely, as usually only the domain so a browser would follow the google link to the index page.

    But a possible work around would be to embed your swf in your webpage with a querystring after the filename,
    eg

    myfile.swf?embed=true.

    Then you can test if that value has been passed to the _root. If not, then getURL the page in which the .swf resides.
