You work hard on your eBook opt in, upload your PDF to the WordPress media library and just like that it’s out there in the world for Google to index and users to share freely. It’s not ideal to have your PDF easily shared meanwhile you’re not capturing email addresses as you’d planned.

Worse still if it’s a digital product that you’ve charged for. Protecting your PDF WordPress media library links from being shared freely is a serious monetary concern.

There are a few solutions, but the one that crops up again and again is the Prevent Direct Access Plugin for Protecting PDFs and other media files from having their URLs shared and your hard work downloaded without getting the email opt in, or purchase.

 

Prevent Direct Access Plugin for WordPress

There’s a free version on WordPress.org

Prevent Direct Access – Protect WordPress Files

And then of course there’s a more feature rich version available directly from the plugin developer.

With the free version you can protect up to 9 files, and there are a few other limitations on some of the more advanced functionality of the paid option. It’s pretty damn useful as a starter to prevent Google from indexing your hard work and showing it up in the search results
