How to Find the Right PDFs Quickly

PDFs are better than other media formats for many reasons – they are portable, they are easy to scan and skim, and they can be printed.

But finding them isn’t always easy.

The first step is knowing where to look, which we covered above.

However, navigating websites is time-consuming. And you don’t always find what you’re looking for.

To save time, here are a few tips for using search engine operators when hunting down PDFs and other change management material.

  • Use the “site:” search operator. When typing a search into Google or another search engine, add “site:[website]” to restrict searches to a specific domain. For instance: change management site:walkme.com.
  • Use the “filetype:” search operator. This search operator only returns specific types of files, such as PDFs, PPTs, Word documents, and so forth. For instance: change management filetype:PDF.
  • Combine both. To restrict your searches even further, combine both search operators. For instance: change management site:deloitte.com filetype:pdf.

Note, however, that these types of searches will not return gated content.

Many valuable reports will require you to enter your contact information prior to download.

Search engines cannot get past these opt-in forms, so bear that in mind when using the “filetype” search operator.
