Count the number of cells containing a particular word

Suppose you are asked to figure out the number of cells in a range contain a particular word, example "hi" (without double quotes).

The example is shown in the image below.

The asterik (*) is used to find matches. It substitutes any other characters.
  1. Hi* would find anything that starts with "Hi"
  2. *Hi would find anything that ends with "Hi"
  3. *Hi* would find anything that contains "Hi"
