Should I add a direct link to PDF files in my (xml) sitemap?

1 Answer 1


If you want them indexed, yes. Otherwise, no.

  • They might get indexed even if not added into the sitemap. If the website contains a link to them, Google might follow it. Dec 9, 2010 at 13:33
  • Of course. But blocking content is not in the scope of this question.
