Google Now Able To Index Scanned PDF Files

Tag: SEO Newsadmin @ 5:47 pm

It was announced yesterday on the Google blog that the search engine giant is now able to crawl and index scanned documents that are saved in the Adobe PDF(portable document format) format.

Wow, the mind boggles at the power that Google has in its quest to make the worlds information available to all.

So if you have any sensitive scanned docs in pdf format somewhere on your site that you would rather Google didn’t show the world, beware, as they are just a crawl away from being available to all.
