My team and I are implementing the pdf2htmlEX conversion to convert and display over 200k pdf documents (available in our database) on our website.
The HTML produced by pdf2htmlEX will be placed "in page", crawlable by Search Engines for up to 3 pages of each document. Today, just to let you know, we display a collection of PNGs instead of the PDFs themselves.
The pdf2HTMLEx library works great in terms of UX, but the HTML text produced is full of
<div> tags and might result difficult to understand by Google.
21. The model of perfect competition is more useful for analy <span class="_ _0"> <span>zing situations in which firms <span class="_ _1"></span> </div><div class="t m0 x5 h2 y35 ff2 fs1 fc0 sc0 ls1 ws0">a. engage in price wars in order to secure a position in the market </div>
My questions are:
- Will this cause problems with Google SE positioning? Is, in your opinion, better than having a list of PNGs?
- Or will this "dirty" HTML look like a bad SEO technique causing us to incur in penalization risks?
