Does CSS background-image generate hits?

If I have a div element with this CSS will count towards the hit limit?
#divElement {
background-image: url(“image.png”);
}

No, it won’t do nothing on your site. It’s just a simple css code. Its not a script or something like a php or javascript.

I’m not sure how this host defines “hits” but getting a background image requires a call to the server to fetch the image, so could well be counted as a “hit”.

Yep, it is counted as HITS just like @webbrewers said.

All resources that is being called on a website’s page load generate a HIT.
