Best way would be to create a custom timer job that goes through your lists every day/week during the night, as going through the lists will slow down your environment. The last part of code I had to write from memory so double check it in your compiler :)

This code will give you the count information

//Use SPSite constructor with URL for main site to return a site collection
SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite(siteUrl);

//Return the target web site based on site name
SPWeb site = siteCollection.AllWebs[siteName];

//Return a collection of list items based on the Items property
//for the specific named list

foreach (SPList list in site.Lists)
{
int itemCount = list.Items.Count; //save this to your SQL database with the listname
}
