    Never tried it, thinking about it.

    What is your opinion and how do these sites work? Do they convert your PDF to text and put it on a page or is it just an uploaded PDF and if so how would G crawl and index your link?

    BIG thanks to anyone who knows.

    Slideshare & Docstoc used to be very good at ranking in the SERPS.

    They keep the upload as a PDF but the S.E spiders / bots now are able to read PDF content, personally I like a few WP plugins that simply take your blog posts, convert them to PDF and upload to those type of sites.

    Best thing was they have do-follow backlinks when I last used them.

    Now I think best practice is to upload a short report 2-5 pgs on your KW / niche and have embedded bit.ly aff links inside, as people like to share the pdf's.

    OK,

    That was basically my question do they stay as PDFs and can G crawl PDFs. Thanks!
