Before leaping to the wrong conclusion, what exactly do you want to count? 
You can derive the number of times a page has been fetched from your web logs.

Alternately, you could add a  table to your database, and at the top of the 
page the link points to, after you've established your database connection, 
$sql_count = "update page_count set views = views + 1 where page = 
'$PHP_SELF' ";
mysql_query( $sql_count );

You'll have to add a record for each page to the database, and by now you 
know how to create tables etc. Justwatch out for reserved words and 
function names; when I first typed the query I used "count" in place of 
page_count. "Views" and "page" probably aren't such a hot choices either.

Fetching the counts for the pages involves nothing more than issuing 
"select * from page_count" and you'll have a per page count of all the 
clicks to each page.
