Can PDF sharing give me any benefit to my SEO strategy? Saday Kumar 12/12/13 4:20 AM
I've read the FAQs and searched the help center. 
Hi,
I am thinking to add PDF document sharing in to my SEO strategy. I read few of top blogs where i found that PDF sharing can boost website ranking and it will help to get visitors. 

I am not sure whether this step will give me success or not. Please help me by giving your helpful advice.

Thanks and Regards
Saday Kumar :)

If you write original quality content then it will certainly help SEO factors as it does for all types of links. If you optimize the link that you get from your PDF document will give you a good benefit. The main thing is the uniqueness and quality and not the version or types of that content. PDF always gives your SEO elements a boost and if you do it properly, you will surely get the advantage.

Thanks @Sudipto79 for your help. I will create unique and quality content for my PDF. But want to know that if i share same PDF in many sites then it will create duplicate content issue?

Hi black belt,
I mean sharing my PDF file and submitting it to PDF submission sites for backlink purpose.

As I assume that the content is important to you, yes, it will create issues. In fact, if you have it on your own website, you might find other websites ranking better than your website for the PDF you created - assuming the content will even rank well after having multiple copies dispersed everywhere.

Are you talking about using the tactic that SEOs were using for a short while which involved creating stuff for the purpose of dumping it in every document sharing repository on the Internet so that it would get indexed and noticed? Doesn't work well any more. That junk seems to have disappeared from all of my searches. None of these tactics are good long term solutions. Google sees the problem, adjusts the algorithm to detect and deal with the loophole leaving you with a wasted effort.

Hi Saday,

 You may share your PDF to various websites but remember the duplicate content issue is applicable here. Therefore go for diversified content and let others to share your link.
