Flash RIA and SEO

Adobe announced today that they will be working closely with Google and Yahoo to improve rich Internet application – RIA search indexing. What this means is that rich media content developers will be able to create more engaging experiences without losing search engine visibility. This is very good news for the RIA community. The only concern I have is where the content will rank relative to content that exists on a normal “static” web site. Also, now that Flash technology will be indexed, how does that fare to technologies such as Microsoft Silverlight RIAs?
