Hit means Web-speak for any request for data from a Web page or file. Often used to compare popularity/traffic of a site in the context of getting so many “hits” during a given period. A common mistake is to equate hits with visits or page views. A single visit or page view is usually recorded as several hits and, depending on the browser, the page size, and other factors, the number of hits per page can vary widely.
