Does google/bing crawl backlinks from pdf ebooks ?

Date: 17 Dec 2014    Group: Blogging and Websites    Category: SEO   

I have read somewhere that if we add back links in PDF files, and upload them in sites like scribd, docshare and other similar ebook sites, then search engines crawls & indexes these backlinks from ebooks. I want to know that the above fact is true or not?

I think yes...because google and bing bots crawl each and every corner of a web page and make no-follow and do-follow links.

If our link is not a no-follow then,google gives us a credit and boosts our SERP.even,if it's no-follow google bot indexes but,it won't takes into consideration for increase in SERP and domain authority.

If you have any pdf's just upload them and get quality do-follow backlinks

Hopee i helped you..
