 PlantSearchOnline.com viewer traffic information  

Wikipedia "hits" definition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_analytics)

Hit - " A request for a file from the web server. Available only in log analysis.
The number of hits received by a website is frequently cited to assert its popularity,
but this number is extremely misleading and dramatically over-estimates popularity.
A single web-page typically consists of multiple (often dozens) of discrete files,
each of which is counted as a hit as the page is downloaded, so the number of hits
is really an arbitrary number more reflective of the complexity of individual pages 
on the website than the website's actual popularity. The total number of visitors 
or page views provides a more realistic and accurate assessment of popularity. "
