Google will stop showing Flash content in search results

Google has announced it will stop indexing pages that use Flash, as well as standalone ’.swf’ animation files. That means about three percent of all websites will become less discoverable by the end of the year. Google’s latest version of Chrome blocks Flash content by default.

What about historical content? Flash was huge on the internet for such a long time. Sites like newgrounds, flash game sites, etc will be de-ranked into oblivion. Can't they just sandbox it?
