    HTML and SEO question

    Looking at this html page code, what parts of it are searchable or readable by search engines?
    Also, where would I put in meta tags and keywords?

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <body bgcolor="#ffffff">
    <!--url's used in the movie-->
    <a href="http://www.tracyarts.com/denton_hanna/stills/dentonhanna_stills_for_film.html"></a>
    <a href="http://www.tracyarts.com/denton_hanna/comm/dentonhanna_commercial.html"></a>
    <a href="http://www.tracyarts.com/denton_hanna/dentonhanna_contact.html"></a>
    <a href="http://www.tracyarts.com/denton_hanna/login/dentonhanna_login.html"></a>
    <a href="http://www.tracyarts.com/denton_hanna/location/dentonhanna_locations.html"></a>
    <!--text used in the movie-->
    <!-- saved from url=(0013)about:internet -->
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="940" height="625" id="dentonhanna_stills_for_film" align="middle">
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
    <param name="movie" value="dentonhanna_stills_for_film.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /><embed src="dentonhanna_stills_for_film.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="940" height="625" name="dentonhanna_stills_for_film" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

    I built a flash website, and the client wants it search optimized. I built it using separate pages... not the way I would normally go, but I read somewhere that it helps with SEO. The above code is for one of the pages. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    All the code in the above page is searchable and indexed by search engines. But how likely is it that the viewer will type
    "<!-- saved from url=(0013)about:internet -->"
    in the search box?
    There is no meaningful content related to your clients Web site in the code above. Check your other post for info on using swfobject to create alternate html text that is readable by search engines.
    Put all your metadata inside the <head>.
    Best wishes,
    Eye for Video
    View page source and scroll down to:
    <!-- Alternate content -->
    HTML descriptions of all the videos... which search engines read and index.

    Thank you, Mr. Eye! I will try and figure this out, but you have given me a starting point.
