    Hi Friend,
    Yes, there are SEO benefits to anchor text links in PDFs. Search engines index pdfs, just as they index html and other text-based pages.

    To optimize a PDF for search, I would

    • Use text formatting (h1, h2, etc.) to optimize headlines and subheads with keywords
    • Use text formatting (bold, italics, etc.) to optimize keywords in body text - use minimally (first-use and for emphasis) and at the top of the document rather than throughout.
    • Use anchor text links both to pages within your site and to pages in other sites to build relevancy and authority. Look for pages with high SERPs value for linking. For internal site and blog linking, find ways to link back to the PDF.
    • The same keyword relevancy that makes an html page rank better will make a PDF rank better, so make sure you optimize your keywords in the content - but don't overdo it.

    Anchor text is the clickable text in a hyperlink. SEO best practices dictate that anchor text be relevant to the page you're linking to, rather than generic text. The blue, underlined anchor text is the most common as it is the web standard, although it is possible to change the color and underlining through html code.

    Here's why PDFs are not ideal for SEO. PDFs can be crawled as though they are web pages by search engines. However, in most cases, they lack information found in standard web pages. ... Search engine bots can crawl, index, and rank them, but they lack the data needed to be ideal SEO assets for content producers.

    SEO is very important for promoting any product or brand. Previously, I did not pay attention to this and decided that I could develop my blog on my own, but I was wrong. Since the creation of my blog, very few people followed the link and studied the information on the site, and then I decided that I should try any tools for promotion. I decided to take a chance and start SEO promotion, but at that moment I did not know anything about marketing and SEO and I was lucky that I came across Marketing Tech. There I found a huge amount of information and it completely changed my attitude towards web marketing and soon, thanks to the accumulated knowledge, I was able to increase the traffic to my blog.

    Anchor text is the clickable text in a hyperlink. SEO best practices dictate that anchor text be relevant to the page you're linking to, rather than generic text. Different browsers will display anchor text differently, and proper use of anchor text can help the page linked to rank for those keywords in search engines.

    Best practices for anchor text optimization

    1. Keep it natural and versatile.
    2. Avoid over-optimization.
    3. Keep anchors relevant to the content.
    4. Engage in relevant guest blogging.
    5. Avoid links from and linking to spammy sites.
    6. Distribute anchors in the right proportions.
    7. Focus anchors on deep-level pages.
    8. Place anchors where users pay the most attention.
