hits

A popular but misleading method of counting viewing of websites. Hits counts the number of downloads of every element of a web page, not the page as a whole. A page with 30 text boxes, images, menus and other graphics will count as 30 hits. Page views are a more reliable measure of web traffic.

Hits

How Idiots Track Success. Ex: If a Web page has seven graphics on it plus the html file itself, each time one person views the page, eight hits will be recorded. Never refer to the number of hits a Web page gets, as advertisers only care about how many page views a Web site delivers during a given time period.

Hits

Number of downloads of every element of a web page, rather than the page as a whole. A page of 20 images, text boxes, logos and menus will count as 20 hits, so hits are therefore not regarded as a reliable measurement of web traffic.

Hits

The number of requests for files made to a Web server. A much misunderstood term. It is not the number of unique visitors. A typical Web page is made up of one HTML file, plus a number of graphics. One request for this page results in several hits.
