Use google docs to embed PDF documents and PowerPoint presentations on your site

If you want to embed a PDF file or a Powerpoint presentation on your site, a pretty easy way to do it, is just go to https://docs.google.com/viewer, introduce the pdf url, click on “Generate Link” and you will get a url to share with your users, where they can see the pdf file on the web or get the html code to embed on your web site

If you want to create the html code on you own is pretty easy just insert an iframe that points to http://docs.google.com/viewer and pass two parameters url=http://yousite.com/pdfile and embed=true and that’s it now you have a pdf embeded on your site
