    OK. So I thought I'd get a few backlinks from document sharing and I have one question.

    I created my pdf with a clickable link and it is clickable in Scribd. I checked the source of the page and nowhere does the link show up in the HTML. I'm guessing it comes up via some javascript.

    If the link doesn't show up in the html, how does Google know that it's a backlink?

    I see many threads saying that doc sharing sites are good high quality backlinks, but I can't find the answer to this question.

    Thanks in advance.

    Google Knows :) But I would guess the backlink is no-follow. Helps with the overall link diversity, but won't directly affect link authority. My 2 cents.

    OK. I've got another question. Is it OK to share the same pdf document across a number of different doc sharing sites, or should I keep them different?
