German term or phrase: Site
A web site providing info on travel planning states, as proof of its success, that 'Ende August waren bereits mehr als 10 Millionen Millionen Sites aufgerufen worden'. Could this mean that there were 10 mill hits, or 10 million searches carried out?

hit


Explanation:
It's obvious that the amount of searches is not equal to number of hits.
Arriving at a site can definitively be termed a 'hit', it being the result of a search.

?? other travel sites were accessed from this site ??


Explanation:
Point #1: Deltra and you could quite well be right but also possible is that 10,000,000,000,000 (10 trillion AE) (10 billion old BE) other travel sites were accessed from this site.

Point #2: There is a typo somewhere in your question, either in the German or English. If the English is right then the German should read "10 Millionen sites". If the German is right then the English should probably be typed in digits to avoid confusion with millions, billions, and trillions.
