Hello,

My web site is http://www.example.com. It is a PPC engine and from time to time (rarely) robots follow the link. How can I avoid that?
How can I tell them not to follow
http://www.example.com/clickcount.php

You can use robots.txt and some meta nofollow/noindex code on the clickcount page. But this does not guarantee that the bots will not continue anyway.

You could always cloak ;)

BTW - you may want to remove your URL before the mods do.
