Although SEO is an integral component of a successful website, designers need to be sure that there is a balance between SEO and content.

There are various steps designers need to take to ensure the pdf’s are optimized correctly.


These steps include:

1. Make Sure the PDF is Text-Based

2. Optimize the Content As You Would For a Regular Web Page

3. Fill in the Document Properties

4. Take Advantage of Tags

5. Make Sure The PDF is Easily Visible
