I have a download file that is protected with a reCAPTCHA. Is there a way to track the downloads (both attempts and completed) with Google Analytics?

1 Answer 1


A quick Google search turns up the answer. In fact, you can track it several ways. You can use a event handler on the link to the download or put the download on a page that has tracking code on it and have that page serve up the file after the captcha is completed.

However, it cannot track if a download is completed. You need special software for that.
