As fonzerelli79 pointed out, "hits" mean very little. A hit is registered for every file transferred. So one page with one image on it will register 2 hits, while one page with 200 images on it will register 201 hits.
Your page views are a better stat to go by, but still not ideal. If you have access to site stats program, check the number of "unique" visitors.
Where are you getting 12,000 page views per day? At http://www.zarayacob.org/
? Since there is no site in your profile, I can only assume that your site is the one for which you recently asked a review. If you're getting that many p.v. without any advertising/promotion, that's quite an accomplishment. Seemingly, the site caters to a niche market, so that's an awful lot of page views.
