Links Stored in DB

For ease of management and counting clicks I store links to external sites in a database. Will this affect my PR?

If you mouse over the anchor text you see

domain.com/prog.php?id=1

I do use relevant anchor text.

You can exclude prog.php from the crawl and the robots will not follow the link.

Since these are links to external site will I still get linking credit in regards to the search engine? I think the answer is no.

domain.com is my domain

prog.php simple increments a counter and redirects to the destination.

If prog.php does a 'proper' redirect they could be counted (finally). But if you want to make sure get rid of the redirect and use some JavaScript tracking.

Not if prog.php is excluded using robots.txt. Anyways, I've forgotten what the original question was ... :)
