It's just a 1 by 1 pixel transparent gif (commonly referred to as a spacer). And wherever you put that invisible pixel, whoever wants to view the page, has to download the spacer. With some analytics you can track who has downloaded it the pixel.

At least I think that's how it works. I've only read/heard about it.
