oooh, can those of us with an accessibility bone jump in too?

it's already been mentioned that links to your site are important.  that's
overlooking the most obvious and most important -- content.  sure, to the
flash-enabled user there's content (though not alot), but to the non-flash
user (which would include search engines), there's only a paragraph or so of
content on a single page.  that amount of content most surely will not get
your site indexed with any amount of relevance or page rank (far more
important and difficult than just getting your site indexed).
