We have successfully installed and configured the Foxit PDF IFilter, and are successfully crawling and indexing PDF documents. The issue is that we have several PDF documents living within a custom ASP.NET application that cross-link to each other via fully qualified hyperlinked URLs.

I could not find documentation that explicitly states whether the internal content of the PDF is evaluated for links to add to the crawl queue. My intuition tells me that by the time a document reaches the IFilter, that it's "too late" in the pipeline. Can anyone confirm or refute my suspicion, preferably with documentation?

This is a question to ask Foxit. However my anecdotal evidence and asking an infrastructure specialist at my office suggests that no, these links will not be added to the crawl queue. – Alex Angas Jun 14 '11 at 23:38
