Hi,

Are more links from the 'same' sites helpful for your website in terms of links for SEO? 1 outsourcer is going to share some PDF to various sites for me and said ...more links from the same sites are helpful ONLY if you provide quality PDF documents.

What is the score here... if you provide decent content will more links from the same sites like SlideShare help SEO? Should the content be original or can it be an article previously posted to my blog for example?

Should I target KW's on my website or different ones aswell?

How many words would you suggest on this PDF?

I have heard these sites can really help for links and traffic so just wanted to find out how other people get the most from doc sharing.
Cheers!

    This is a very outdated strategy. Links from PDF files carry zero SEO power. It will be a total waste of your time and resources.

      I've heard a lot of people say similar things about PDF links. We use SEMrush's link-building tool. I'm not sure if you're familiar with it or not, but it ranks links on a 1-5 scale.

      When we run one of our sites through there, it almost always grades Google Books a 5 out of 5 link-building opportunity...

      I'm not trying to question what you're saying, because I agree with it. But I have to wonder if there's not an exception to this rule for this particular Google product. Do you have any thoughts on this?

    Links inside PDF files don't pass any juice to the destination URLs. Although I believe there is a hack for extracting the link juice. Assuming its your own PDF file, you can create an HTML version of that document, then do a canonical redirect.

    Use original and quality content on these websites
    Use keywords in the title
    Use hashtags at the end of the article
    Use 1 or 2 anchors
    3-4 times using keywords naturally is good strategy.
    Yes, sharing many articles on same website will help getting indexed.

    I am using intoupload.com i contacted their support, they are assisting perfectly. They also do not delete files as many other file sharing sites.
