Hi, Iím trying to make a pdf indexable. Currently the client has a link to a download page where the visitor has to include their contact details, once completed they can download the PDF. This is causing the PDFs to not index. They want to keep the functionality of having a form completed before being able to download the PDF so they grab prospects. So I was thinking maybe the best way from an SEO point of view would be to add a popup div overlay with a contact form over the PDF. Once the Contact form is completed then the popup div overlay disappears to show the pdf in the background.
The issue is that I will need to embed the pdf into a webpage so I can add the popup div overlay. Iíve never embedded pdfs before. I was going to use the following code to embed. Will Google be able to read the pdf and will the URL of the page its embedded into be the index URL for that pdf?
<code><object data="data/test.pdf" type="application/pdf" width="300" height="200">
alt : <a href="data/test.pdf">test.pdf</a>
