Ok, it's pretty simple. I'll give you the general idea, you have to put it in to action.
The link is not really a link to the page you want to go to, it goes to a script that  does 2 things:
1.  Counts the number of page hits it gets,
2.  Re-directs to the actually target page that you want to send the user.  Now you can add on to this script for it to do other things like count where the user came from via a variable in the address (ie. http://www.foo.org/r...referid=jimbob) or any other amount of things.  Hope this helps. Peace,

it seems like a counter would be the simplist solution to the problem, and i know that there are counters that can be hidden so only you know how many hits the page has gotten.

Nah the best way to do it would be with PHP.  I'll write up a quick script when I have some more free time

Teckwiz some of these things that you are asking about are fairly easy.. you being the web developer resource shold try learning them, take a look at a few of the resources on dream.in.code and give er a try.. i'm sure you can do it! :)
