Tracking a PDF on a website that is created with the GoDaddy website builder

Our company website is created by the website builder on GoDaddy. On our main page, there is a link where people can click and a PDF opens. We want to track, how many people click on that link to see the PDF. Google Analytics is implemented on our site, but we can't see if anybody clicked on that link.

I chatted with GoDaddy about this problem, but they couldn't help. They said that Google Analytics should be able to help.

Since there is no phone support for Google Analytics (according to the Google Help Line), I am posting my question here.

Hi Marcel,


GoDaddy.. never ceases to amaze me.  Smiley Happy  My recommendation is to switch to Google Tag Manager (GTM) and use the built in listerners for this... or use autotrack.. if website builder will let you.


Here is more info on auto track:


Lastly you could use inline JS but I would not recommend it.


Hope that works for you.
