How to add a download counter?

So on my website I upload templates for people to download.

I was wondering if it's possible to add a counter next to the download buttons which increases by 1 every time someone simply clicks the button.

The download button re-directs to an instant download from another site where all my templates are stored.

Thanks in advance

This has nothing to do with just slapping a button onto a page, it's really technical stuff that has to come from somewhere outside of Muse.

Oh okay I understand.

I was just wondering whether it was possible for muse to know how many times a button was simply clicked on
