The other day, I saw a couple complaints from higher profile SEOs that Google is not doing a good job with preventing spammy PDF content from showing up in the Google search results. Jennifer Slegg posted on Twitter saying "I wish Google would do something with all this PDF spam in the search results." Then Pedro Dias, former Googler, posted also on Twitter, "I wish Google would do something with all this spam I keep finding. I keep reporting and it's still there, for years... I even got a client that admitted to manipulation, never got hit for 1+ years."

Gary Illyes from Google said he wants to see examples of this spam and wrote "That's frustrating. I BET if you knew someone at Google, at least some of them could get looked into." In short, he personally wants to look into these cases, so if you see them, let him know on Twitter, I guess.

Here are those tweets:
