I can view a PDF document from a website. But the URL is not an actual PDF document. The URL looks like:

http://www.maskingtheRealSiteName.com/reportpdf/type/dossier/pdfno/IND003212202

Thus the actual PDF document is embedded on the page.

How can I obtain the actual .PDF link of this document?

  • Are you using Chrome? Try <F12> then click on the "Network" tab. Go to (or refresh) the page where you can see the .pdf. Then click on the "filter" icon and type .pdf: i.stack.imgur.com/i3WpR.png . Does the pdf link show up? – Pacerier May 2 '15 at 6:27
  • Thanks for reply Pace.... I do not have Chrome. Do we have similar workaround for Firefox or IE plz? Also, Do I have to install any extention of FF for that? – Natasha Sharma aka Nino May 2 '15 at 6:31
  • Sorry but this question is considered off-topic because it is more browser related. It may be suitable on Super User however it could be duplicate as there are various questions regarding finding out file url path. – Simon Hayter May 2 '15 at 9:19
  • Why is this Off topic? The Browser is how the communication happens between Client and a Website. Why is offtopic that for Webmaster? SuperUser is more about PC. – Natasha Sharma aka Nino May 2 '15 at 9:29

    Natasha, asking questions on how to find links isn't related to webmaster type of questions. That question is more like a question on where to find content. First answer that comes to mind is google. If the website has a contact form, use it and contact whoever is in charge of the content which is likely the webmaster. If however, you meant something totally different in your question, then you should reword it so we can all understand it better. – Mike May 2 '15 at 15:58
