Hi,

Quick question regarding pdf's.

Google has indexed a number of pdf's on a site that i am working on. Is there any way to optimise the content in these pdf's? Can google even read the content in pdf's, given that you can't copy and paste it?

Any ideas?

Thanks ;-)

Google has no problem indexing PDF content.

>>given that you can't copy and paste it?
Yes you can click on the T sign near the HAND, and ZOOM.

the users that find PDF content, often search for very specific terms, so IMO just let it be and everything will be fine.

does it make sense to create keywords in pdf-files (in document properties/summary/keywords) are they being used by search engines?
