Why Using a PDF Menu On Your Website is DEADLY

Published on

Why is your website using a PDF version of your menu?

Heads up: It's difficult for visitors to read by pinch and zooming the menu from a smartphone device, and Google does not read text from an image so you lose all of that SEO juice.

Try this instead: Create an HTML (text) version of your menu.You can still make it look beautiful and fancy just by designing it properly, but designing it for a rich web experience.

A PDF that your menu designer makes is intended on printing, not viewing on the web.

This is a new series I'm trying out. Quick(er) videos, one take, on short subjects.

I get asked these kinds of questions all the time and I catalog them into my notes app. I never discuss them because they don't really fit into a "tutorial" style video.

I think a video to just briefly discuss and answer the question is useful though.

What do you think? Drop a note in the comments if you like this style.
