I'm helping make a website that ideally needs to be searched/indexed by Google Scholar, yet easy enough for a lay person to upload articles/publications of a scientific/health nature (which will be searched by Google Scholar).
Hence I have decided on WordPress as being a potentially useful tool. Now, regardless of the design (free/premium), what I wanted to ask was:
1) Google scholar robot needs to index the individual wordpress site. Will this happen? http://scholar.google.com/intl/en/scholar/inclusion.html
2) Is it possible to "export" the wordpress functionality of easy to post (ie make it simple to "upload" a blog with the text of a word document, as well as create a link to that document's pdf file)? Or would it be better to have wordpress host the domain of the site, and that would enable me to use wordpress functionality?
