PDF click tracking setting


I’ve been reading this thread regarding event tracking within Webflow:

My client would like to track clicks on a PDF download to track download numbers.
Could someone please confirm or advise if this is the correct language to use??

_gaq.push([’_trackEvent’, ‘PDF’, ‘Button’, ‘PDFname’]);

Thanks in advance

Hi Daniel,

I’m having the same issue - I would like to track who is downloading PDFs from a Webflow site - Did that code work for you?


@HCDC @danielcobb Simplest solution is using Tag Manager and GA and a click event. Here’s a how to for getting Tag Manager on Webflow. Adding GA to Tag Manager, creating a trigger and pushing an event to GA Once you have Tag Manager installed it’s super quick to add events.

GTM won’t tell you WHO but will show you stats and anonymized info. The only way to track WHO downloads an asset is to control assets behind a login. Not possible in Webflow without a third-party tool.
