I was just wondering how I would go about tracking pdf files downloaded from my website and how I would filter the data to show me the country of origin for these downloads.

Hi @Jenver M :-)
Are the files downloaded by a site visitor clicking on a link that is on one of your website pages that has google analytics installed?

If so, you would need to setup event tracking or virtual pageviews to track the links.


You would then be able to go into the Top Event reports and add a Secondary Dimension of Country


If you have further questions or need further help, pls post back
