compared to server stats.

At the moment I have no server stats, only Google analytics.

I just realised, Analytics don't monitor non html pages, so I have no stats as to pdf views or downloads ...

Not really happy with that.

Maybe setting goal will solve your issue.

yes goals and event tracking. It involves placing javascript on your links. Haven't done it yet but the code looks light and could be done dynamically

Thank you for that! I had been confused by the different formats not realizing one was for the new and the other for the old.

It was just me not understanding the difference between the two lines of code. I had seen there were two versions of the code, didn't realize one was the older version. I had thought it had a different purpose. So I'm glad you mentioned that.
