    Go to Google and type the following in the search box:

    Code:
    "product name here" filetype:pdf
    Note: Above, where it says Product Name, type in the name of the product or you can try by partial name. For instance:

    Code:
    "affiliiate" filetype:pdf
    You might do that if you were looking for a PDF product that had the word "affiliate" in it.

    Just play around with it. You will be surprised at the stuff you will find :)

    Wiz, thank you for this code, i've done exactly that and it works really great! a good addition to my scraping of the product i am looking for. how about this, if there is one or two sites i've seen and targetting this specific sites and i want to scrape all their files in pdf format like there are about hundreds of them, is there a tool where i can do this automated and not manually? and then also maybe i can scrape those files through ftp if possible?

    You can probably use this method below + url extractor and create a macro to visit each link and download the ebook...
