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

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.
