Track Downloads in Google Analytics

If you use Google Analytics for your website traffic analysis, you will agree that this is a very powerful and easy-to-install tool for webmasters.

You can see which pages are viewed most, where the visitors came from, how long they stayed and much more. But one very important information is missing: How often has a PDF, document, music file or presentation been downloaded from your website ?

Ouch, Google Analytics does not know! If you are a JavaScript hacker, you can get that working. But if you are not a web developer, you can use perm.ly to track downloads in Google Analytics without any technical changes on your website or blog.
