Listing Activity Hit Count
A “Hit” is counted when a listing is clicked so that it is the one in focus in search results. It does not count as a hit when a listing simply appears in the results; someone has to click it to count as a hit. The very first listing in the result set does not count as a hit because it is in focus by default.
Each time a user clicks on a listing, it is counted as a hit unless the listing is already in focus. In other words, clicking from the Detail tab to the Photos tab doesn’t count as a hit, but clicking to a different listing, then back to the first listing does count again as a hit on the original listing.
These rules apply to all hit types: Flexmls, e-mail, IDX, and portal.
