    Is there a way to get my actual PDF indexed and ranked in Google? As in, the PDF shows up in the SERPs, someone clicks it and is taken to the PDF, not a page where they can only download it.

    Thanks.

    Sure, PDFs work like a page, except that you can't really optimize it that much.
    I've found keywords with thousands of exact searches and the top result was a PDF page. I was surprised and thought it was an easy target, but then I found out that the PDF had millions of backlinks to it and it would be pretty much impossible to beat.
