How do I get the url to stay the same when using a redirect script?

Just a quick question about the alternative route, how do spammers intend to hijack the php version of the script (not your db version) i.e using header("Location: $url"); and $HTTP_REFERER ? What about if you add the redirect script name to disallow in robots.txt too?
Are the spammers doing it to get an 'inbound link'? If so it wouldn't work as when a search engines visits the redirect script it would return nothing as they won't be coming from the site either ($HTTP_REFERER).
I'm just wondering how they go about it and whether I can get away with not using the version which makes a db hit for every link.
Sorry if this is a nube question!
