Of course, results vary wildly depending on your choice of search terms, but clearly, awareness that PDF files are part of web content -- just like HTML -- is catching on. How do the PDF files on your own website look today? Google's Advanced Search makes it easy.
Testing your own site is simple; just Google as follows: In terms of PDF files, the blue underlined text in Google's search results comes from one of two places.
First, Google looks in the "Title" document information field. If it finds nothing, Google's indexer tries to guess the document's title by scanning the text on the first few pages.
This usually doesn't work, producing incorrect and improperly formatted results. Of course, if the indexer DOES find text in the Title field, it will use it —- regardless of whether that text is garbage or not. As a result, there are millions of PDF files on the web with gloriously informative titles such as: Well, apart from the fact that the designer used Quark, there's nothing else I know or care to know about this document from looking at the search results.
Be sure your PDF files' document information fields correctly represent your document. There are a variety of third-party server tools for reading and writing PDF metadata to support or process large collections of PDF files.
While it's the simplest thing for PDF authors to include a meaningful title, real-world search results clearly demonstrate that many leave their title fields empty, bogus or just don't bother at all.
As in the above example, many authoring applications simply place filename information in the Title field, providing a search-results "look and feel" that ranges from cryptic to completely meaningless. Whatever else you do when posting PDF files for public view, quality title metadata is essential. Ensuring that each and every PDF file contains a valid and meaningful title is the single easiest way to ensure that search results will display information that's vital to getting users where they want to go.
Leave PDF titles unattended, and the certain result is slower, less-reliable searches for every user, every time they search. PDF Specification: In early , Google couldn't index PDF files above the 1. As of July , Google indexes content from even Adobe's latest specification version -- 1. File-size limits: No search engine I'm aware of indexes every word in every PDF file.
Much larger, however, and Google simply ignores the PDF file entirely. Of course, it's also possible that Google's limiting factor on PDF files is based on the time required to download the file from a given server.
If so, then faster websites with larger pipes will get more of their large PDF files indexed than the same size files would get on a poorly performing server. Text-volume limits: File size is one way of limiting content, but for search engines, it's the text itself that really counts. PDF files can be packed with megabytes of pure text. While I don't know Google's current upper limit on text it's willing to index, I did test the Report of the Commission, one of the most popular PDF-based reports on the web.
At pages, the plain text is 1. If your files are a lot larger, post and test them first, by searching for a unique text string towards the end of the document.
If posting large PDF files due to the size of the included images, for example and it's critical that Google indexes all of the content, consider posting by chapter. This way, Google is less likely to stop indexing at, say, page 57 of a page document. Many PDF files are simply scanned pages with no searchable text.
Until recently, these PDF files were effectively invisible to search engines because, well, there's no text to search. This means that even plain, scanned pages will be searchable, even if the owner didn't explicitly make them so.
So far as I know, Google is still the only search engine to offer this feature. Now Google's OCR isn't the greatest; it's optimized for speed rather than accuracy. You can do this yourself, and get better search results, by running and quality controlling your own OCR, then posting the results.
There are many reasons to secure PDF files against unwanted changes, or to disallow the extraction of content.
