How difficult would it be to use PHP/SQL to count when people click on an email or web link?

Louis Brown, Michael Erb,
Have a table with fields: "link", "count".
Have a page that you point all of your links/emails to.
For a "Web Link":
For a "email":
Do a SELECT to see if an entry for "link" already exists, if it does
UPDATE the count by 1, if it doesn't INSERT a new record.
then redirect the browser to the "link".
For email the browser will spawn an email dialogue from this, but its
up to you where you actually want to send the browser to.
