    You will need to have an account with Google Analytics and the tracking code enabled and successfully gathering stats on the rest of your site.

    You will need to enable in GDE Settings the "Track downloads in Google Analytics" under Download Link Options.

    It may take some time to appear if these have not been active already, but you should in time see these downloads show up in GA under Content > Events. GDE tracks downloads as events rather than Pageviews to avoid artificially inflating your site's regular "hit" stats.

    Hope this helps.

    There are many plugins and tutorials on the web that explain this. Here is one (at random). Google "how to install google analytics in wordpress" or something similar for others. Once the tracking code is working on your site and you've set the GDE options as above, you should be all set.
