I am looking for a way to use Google Analytics provide me a report of .mp3 requests from the server.
I think it can be done, but I'm not sure how to do it.
The problem is that we send a feed to iTunes, TuneIn, etc...and Google Analytics (GA) doesn't track those file requests.
At the moment, the amount of requests is fairly small (1000 or less daily requests), so I'm wondering if there is a 'trick' to using .htaccess (or something similar) and rewrite a request so is triggers an 'event' that GA WOULD be able to track?
Is something like that possible? Or is there a much simpler way that I'm overlooking?
I'd prefer the results would show in GA, (even more preferable if they were separated out so we can see what shows are more popular than others.)
But if this isn't possible with GA, then what would be a good workaround?
Webalizer won't work for this (tried it - unless it isn't set up properly)
I have no idea how to set up something like AWSats, although if someone could help with that, that might work.
I imagine that other 'podcasters' out there might be experiencing the same issues, so I thought I'd ask here so it would help them also.
