When is a hit recorded?

Many of my blog posts are short enough not to warrant a click through to read more yet they are still racking up hits. My question is when is a hit registered? Is it when the dedicated blog post page itself is viewed? Do items receive individual hits when the frontpage itself is viewed? Any illumination most welcome, thanks.
