Tracking PDF Downloads

I have a couple of pages on our website that include links to download white papers that are saved as PDF files. Is there a way to track how many times those white papers have been downloaded?

Hey,

You have 2 options to track your pdf downloads:

Using GA tracking event: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/events
Using Google Tag Manager: https://support.google.com/tagmanager/answer/6106716?rd=1

If you need to track many links and constantly adding new ones, Google Tag Manager would be a better option. Simo has a very good tutorial

Hope it helps,
