Some websites (Google and Fark.com, for example) do this by forwarding you to an intermediary page when you click a link. This intermediary page is doing counting. Try doing a google search and hovering over the ads. All the results (in the ads, not the search results) have links like

Other sites use the javascript onClick() function to capture the count with an ajax call as the user leaves the page.

see this for more information:
