Means that number of people have looked at it.

Actually, it's the number of times the page has been looked at. So if you look at it, and press Refresh 4 times, that would register as 5 hits.

Are you sure Dumbledior?
Because this is what it sais:
Hits 111
Visits 4
Day Hits 22
Day Visits 3
Friends 0

And are you sure hits means visits? because visits is already on there.

Actually, I am not quite correct.

If you bring up a page with 4 pictures on it, and a music file, that will be 6 hits to the server. 1 for the page, and one each for the files.
