Tracking PDF download


Level 1

Hi, please help me out. As far as I know, you can not track any activity on the pdf link since it's not a website, right?

If the link is inserted on your website, then you can track how many people open the PDF on the website (by clicking on the pdf link), but not be able to track any further activities once the users are on the pdf link (like track the download button on the file, etc)


But I recently was told that you can track how many times users open, view the file, and even track the number of downloads using Adobe Analytics?

Here is the example pdf link:

and the screenshot dashboard which shows the results.

They claim that their ads lead people to a pdf link (as a landing page) and they track the pdf link just like a normal website. Does it really work? If so, how can I install the tracking code on the pdf link?
