Just a very generic suggestion: Use session. If a session has not been 
established count the visit, set a session cookie and then whenever a 
jumpback happens check for session cookie. If there is a session cookie then 
don't increment. 

This is a portion of how most simple login pages function. Plenty of code 
samples and examples around the net that you can lift and get ideas. Just 
look for PHP "Login" pages.

Probably better and easier ways, but this is what jumps out first.
