This option is not recommended. Search engines like Google can’t read photos – text ads get more hits!

1 Sometimes PDFs contain text as raster images (a whole bunch of dots) or vector art (plotted lines) instead of as computer text, and in such cases text conversion is necessary to create a web page version of your ad.

2 Text conversion is the process of taking a picture of text and converting it into computer text using a process called OCR (Optical Character Recognition). This can be done with higher-quality printed sale ads and computer images.
