I have run into this same issue with pdf pages that I have included in the index custom lesson plan search engine that I manage at http://www.nea.org/tools/lesson-plan-search.html.

It would be so helpful if web developers and web content managers designed and coded their sites so that they could be more easilty and accurately retrieved by search engines.

I would also like to see developers include rich snippets and structured data to aid in more accurate retrieval of the most relevant resources when users conduct a search.
