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?

You have 2 options to track your pdf downloads:

Using GA tracking event:
Using Google Tag Manager:

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,
