How to allow search engines to search through PDF file attached to my site

Post by Zenith-nova » Mon Jun 27, 2022 8:23 am

On my Joomla 3 website, I'm using smart search. there are articles which contains PDF files. When I try to search the article, the title did appear however, we can't read the pdf when we click the search result.

Here is the sample site for your easy reference:
please try to search (agm) and click the first one.

Any idea on how we can make search engine open an attached PDF files?

Joomla can't index PDF files, you will need an extension for that: https://extensions.joomla.org/instant-s ... ndex%20pdf

I haven't tested all extensions, so I can't give you a recommendation
