I don't know where $r['total_votes'] is defined, but if you just want to add one to a column's value, you can simply do:

...
$sql = "UPDATE links SET total_votes = total_votes + 1 WHERE id='$id'";
$result = mysql_query($sql);
if (!$result)
    echo 'Not updated. SQL: ', $sql, ' Error: ', mysql_error();
else
    echo "Plus 1... added...";
