This is a competitor of one of my clients: www.canadiansprings.com.
The site is done in flash, has a splash site, appears to have no backward links except their own yet has a page rank of 5? How can this be? They seem to be doing everything I've been told would not work for SEO yet they are right up there in prime positioning on Google.
Thoughts/comments would be appreciated of what took them up there.

Although I admit that to humans on non-frames browsers this may be human readable, it strikes me as fairly close to cloaking. To be fair, in this case the <No Frames> text appears to be exactly what is in the Flash site, and with the exception of the metatag keywords being repeated twice, it doesn't appear to be spammy. The repetition "could" be a simple mistake, from the looks of it. The <no frames> page is actually designed to be pleasing to the eye (if plain) and doesn't contain the random garbage that I associate with automatic "doorway page" programs.
An interesting way of approaching the problem. I didn't see anything that made me want to report them for unfair or bad practices (sorry).

How are you viewing the "no frames" wording? I cannot view any source code, how do I do this? View source shows up nothing and cannot follow your answers right now.
Thanks ahead of time...
