I'm sure Google can index and search your normal PDF's on your website 

I'm also fairly sure that PDF's created by Scribus have had indexable 
and searchable text for quite a  while, a couple of years I would guess.

Even some web CMS's allow searching of PDF's too. I know that Plone does 
with a 3rd party extension, and will invisibly index and make PDF's 
searchable with the new version Plone 3.0 straight out of the box.
