Embedding PDF On

Since PDF document is a standard form of sharing files online, I've been using it a lot in this blog.

With that I have tried many ways on how can I embed pdf files for my readers. I had tried scribd and docstoc, but this two popular free online tool is too troublesome to use.

To use them, you need to download the pdf files from the source site (considering that it is a public document), and then you'll need to upload it to these pdf hosting sites, you will then be redirected a few times before you can get the embed code that you will need to paste on your blogger blog.

Sure these hosting sites are free to use, docstoc will even let you use your own adsense code that will be displayed once visitors view your uploaded pdf file to their site.

But the whole uploading process is a long process for someone like me.

Fortunately, i discovered a free service that would let me embed a PDF file in an instant.

Introducing Google Docs Viewer!

Google Docs Viewer will only ask you for the location of your PDF document and after clicking the "Generate Link" button - youll can immediately grab that embed-code for your website.

And presto! the PDF document was already on your site with a few simple task.
