PDF and PRINT buttons - do you use it?

Hi there,

I always wanted to ask this question:

Did you ever use print or PDF button on any website? Or on your xoops website in general?

I never use that options... If I need i print from browser ctrl+p, and never used makepdf option.

How about you?

Re: PDF and PRINT buttons - do you use it?

Hi,

I've used them but I finally suppress both print and pdf.

PDF was cancelled because it takes to much ressources from server : when the website gets little popularity, PDF takes too much time to process.

There was a few month, I suppress every print functions : it makes DC (duplicate content) and Google seems to index better the print page rather than the full page... It's a problem to get some smart positions in SERP; and finally, you don't "catch" the visitor to your site : he goes away after viewing the print page... It's not good enough.

That's my opinion, and just mine.

I agree. I have the same experience with Google and indexed print page. That's also why I always disable that option.
