page view

A Web page, which can be of any length and can contain any number of graphic images. The HTML page itself and every image are each considered a hit. Thus, one page view is one hit only if there are no graphics on the page. See 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.
