If someone watches your front page, that's a hit. If the page contains 8
images, that's 8 more hits. If the visitor then steers away to another page,
e.g. to leave a comment, that's a hit. I think that your front page alone
will invoke 10-15 hits on the first view. I say "first" because once files
are received in the first place, they will not necessarily be called for
