How can I track podcast downloads?

I've been helping my wife produce a podcast. It publishes through a Wordpress site sitting on Dreamhost. We have Google Analytics set up for the site (which existed as a blog before the podcast came along), but unless I'm reading them wrong, they don't appear to show podcast downloads. What's the best way, either through Google Analytics or some other route, to get reliable numbers on downloads? [more inside]

How can I find the total number of tweets for a hashtag?

I'm trying to find out how many tweets a particular hashtag has had over the last 90 days. I've been clicking through various Twitter analytics sites and not finding the data I need- either they only show the last 30 days, or they show the tweets but don't give me a total #. Anyone know a tool that can definitely answer this question? Thanks!

Easy way to track page views when I can't install anything?

I write freelance. I get paid based on page views. I want to track my views on articles independently, not just rely on the numbers fed to me by clients that host the articles I write. I know I can use tracking pixels for this. I have spent hours hunting for third-party services that host the little 1x1 devils and generate usable reports. I am shocked at the lack of alternatives out there. [more inside]

Google analytics? I have the tracking code. What now?

This is for work. It's a wordpress site. According to a wordpress plugin that's already been installed, I have a google analytics tracking number that has been on the homepage for several months already. How do I see analytics about the site's visitors. When I go to Google analytics, it makes me enter an email address, my site URL and generates a NEW tracking number. I don't want a new tracking number. I want to use my existing number that has been on the homepage for months already. so how do I use google analytics if all I have is a tracking number and a URL. I don't have the email associated with this tracking URL, if there ever was one. That was before I was hire. Thanks.

Tracking user activity on a Wordpress blog

Wordpress question: Is it possible to generate a report on which users are the most active on the site in terms of interactions, click-throughs, and time logged-in? I see a few plugins which claim to do this, but it seems like something you'd have had to have installed since the time you wanted to start keeping track. Is there something I can use which will find this information automatically?

What are the best reputable sources to learn more about internet marketing?

Though I've been working with web development since the 90's, I have a hands-on knowledge gap when it comes to internet marketing techniques like SEO, Adwords, analytics and the like. What are the best sources, free or paid, to learn more? I've been looking around for good resources, but it looks like this field is dominated by crooks. Any recommendations of books and sites written by reputable professionals is appreciated. I'm also a big fan of video lectures, if you know of any.

Advertising with Apartments.com CTR discrepancy...scam?

I took out an advertising package with Apartments.com. This is no cheap proposition, at $2,000 for 500,000 impressions. I wasn't expecting much out of this, but was hoping for at least the 0.05% the apartments.com rep claimed was their average, considering that our company is in the moving industry and has some impressive accolades under our belt all mentioned in our ad. 50,000 impressions in and my apartments.com contact claims there've been 18 clicks (0.03% CTR). However I only see 6 originating from apartments.com, 2 of which were just me testing out the ad. [more inside]
