PDF files are crawled and indexed by Google. Links in them do count as backlinks. A few years ago there was a site that got a penalty for distributing PDF files for various websites to post because those files contained links with anchor text of popular search terms.

GWT backlinks report is not the one to trust too, I think. It may show links from deindexed pages, and do not show the live ones. To check the backlinks use ahrefs or something. GWT is only an additional tool to see. Regarding indexing by search engines, search for the exact text around the link/anchor (or with anchor) and see the results.

Using a word many times on your site does not help you rank for it. Nor does Google determine what your website is about based on which words you use most. One of my sites uses the word "rectangle" four times on every single page. It is the text about different sizes of images to download. My site isn't about rectangles. Google knows my site isn't ...

I think you answered your own question in the first statement. Using the same anchor text for a lot of your links is not a good idea. Instead, try using something more descriptive. However, this is very common so I would not get fixated on this unless your entire page says nothing but "read more". Search engines are smart enough to recognize that "Read ...

There may not be any way to find out when an arbitrary web page was first indexed by Google — certainly I don't know of any way to do so. It's possible that Google simply does not store that information, since there's no real reason why they'd need to. Besides, even if they do store this information, they really have no particular reason to make it ...

At the bottom of the last page you should see something similar to this: In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the 348 already displayed. If you like, you can repeat ...

Operators like site: and link: are known to not show all relevant results. This is on purpose as it prevents others from knowing exactly Google is handling your website inhibits any attempts ...

To answer the original question: no there is no way to mark a page as user-generated content. But "keyword density" is not a site-wide metric. Adding user-generated content will not affect the keyword density of your other pages and will not harm the ranking of your site (unless there is a large amount of spam). Adding some UGC to existing pages is very ...
