Use Bitly.com for that.

While Bitly is great, it's not exactly helpful when you want to link an entire folder, and then get user interaction stats of what happened during the visit to that folder. which files did he view / download etc... but it does help to get some general idea

This morning I started to try to get Google Analytics to work for a Google Doc document.
The example javascript snippet from the analytics <dot> google <dot> com page is not compatible with Google Apps Scripts. I'm still researching what would work.


In the meantime I have an empty onOpen() {} function and that is good enough to cause script execution log entries every time the document is opened.  Slightly better than nothing for now.

I think the best solution would be if Google implemented the same "activity tool" that's present in Docs across other file types, including PDFs and video files stored in Drive.  

A workaround for you could be to share the videos through unlisted YouTube links instead of Drive, and embed those links into your doc instead.  Then you'd at least have a view counter.
