Definition: hits

The number of times a website has been accessed or the number of results a search retrieves. For example, when a Web page is downloaded over the Internet, the page and all the graphic elements on the page count as one hit to that website. If a search yields 100 results, those 100 results may be called 100 hits. Hits are used in the Internet advertising world to monetize content. See hit rate and page view.
