In English, there are some standard distinctions drawn between "hits",
 "page views", and "(unique) visitors".  Perhaps the "visit" is
related to the latter term?

A page view is an access of a single web page.  A single page view may
comprise many "hits" - if the page has images, or references an
external stylesheet, or an external JavaScript code library, or
anything else that's not stored within the body of the HTML itself,
each reference to each of those things is a "hit" (though not all
necessarily to the same web server).

A "(unique) visitor" is a single person browsing your site.  If they
hit "refresh"/"reload" 500 times on your page, that's 500 page views,
and maybe 10,000 hits, but still only one visit(or).
