You can probably do this with Google Analytics by looking at "referrals".

I don't know how your site is set up to manage downloads but a download manager such as Phoca Downloads would have some sort of tracking / analytic system built in.

Even if not the above, Joomla has basic "hit counter" functionality so that would be a possibility too.

@AMurray: I think we're talking about how someone can see if people accessed their website as the result of going to the JED and then clicking a link on someone's listing to then be referred to the website. Tracking how many downloads one has (or using a hit counter) is not what the question seems to be about. That's my reading of it.

At the face of it yes, the question is about tracking the traffic from JED to their website, but I think that's only half the story. I wonder what is the point in tracking the referrals if the next step is not taken in tracking the downloads as well.

Anyway, perhaps that is slipping into another issue as you suggest.
