How To Track Downloads in Blogger?

I use Dstats service for tracking number of downloads. The method is simple. There are two steps which are,

Inside your posts simply paste the code below. Replace  PASTE-FILE-LINK-HERE with the link of your file you want readers to download. And replace Image URL OF Download Button with the Image Link of your Download button.

<a href=""><img src="Image URL OF Download Button" border="0"/></a>

<p>Downloads:<a href=''></a>
<script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
<script type='text/javascript'>document.write(dsCounter);</script></p>


Grab these Download Buttons.

You can use the following Download buttons from dryicons Simply right click an image and select “Copy Image Location” and this will give you the Image URL for the button.

download_buttons1 download_buttons4
download_buttons2 download_buttons5
download_buttons3 download_buttons6


Once you are done, publish your post and see a beautiful Download button with an auto download tracker hanging inside your post. Enjoy! :)
