Use a hook,

every time a page get's outputted it can call a hook,

I use this hook: contentPostProc_output

Then in that hook do a simple update of your page counters,
for example:

update pages set counterfield=counterfield+1 where uid=<someuid>

Then your page will alsways be in cache,
but you can update your statistics.
