First Post!!!

I am having trouble finding information on the best ways to use links in my PDFs. Is there a way to have keyword rich anchor text links within a PDF?

It is to my understanding that if you want a link within a PDF that does not contain "http://www." you have to create a "hotspot" over the text or image. Is this effective for the bots?

Thanks - Andy

Welcome Andy! :aloha:

I haven't studied this, but I would imagine it's the same as with HTML files. Simply link to the words within your PDF as you normally would create a link. If you use the full version of Adobe Acrobat to create your PDFs, you can easily do this.

Hi Andy:

Take a look at this page for a tutorial on one way to do it.
