    I really depends. There are flash sites that get really large traffic.
    One of the cons of using flash site is the slow loading speed that could make your visitors go away from your site.

    Make it load fast or you will be penalized by the search engines. :)

    Personally, I don't recommend them at all. They aren't very good for search engines.

    It's really hard for a flash website to load faster or in par with html sites. Let alone visitors having different internet speed.

    Move away from Flash sites! Google can't read flash very well, so your doomed to obscurity in the SERPs. I often have website redesign requests from clients with flash websites that realise they can't be found by their customers on search engines.
