Can somebody please explain to me how to export an AI file to a PDF to be viewed online?

Save as - PDF. In the dialog that comes up, select "Smallest File Size" in the Adobe PDF Preset dropdown. Under "Compression", adjust the settings to get the quality you want - something I've noticed, sometimes setting your resolution to 200dpi or more and using the "Smallest File Size" works pretty good - makes a nice, clear image and has a small file size.
