hits

The number of times a program or item of data has been accessed or matches some condition. For example, when you download a page from the Web, the page itself and all graphic elements that it contains each count as one hit to that website. If a search yields 100 items that match the searching criteria, those 100 items could be called 100 hits. See hit rate and page view.
