Tracking PDF Downloads - Help please!

Hi all,

I've recently set up an ecommerce site and have put a new link on my front page which allows potential customers to download a sample PDF so they can see what they get for their money. This is done via an image which links to some webspace I have with Lycos.

My question is, how can I track how many people are downloading this PDF? As the link goes directly to the file I don't think Google Analytics can help me, can it?

My site is at click here.

Any suggestions gratefully received!

Thanks

Andy

I have Google Analytics and the site stats software provided by the e-commerce provider (EKM Powershop) but both only give me page views, not downloads.

Doesn't Lycos also provide you with site stats?
