Guitar strings come in different gauges or thicknesses. Different thicknesses suit different guitars and different playing styles. Generally the thinnest gauge of strings are gauge 8s. These are very thin strings that are ideal for big bends and massive vibrato. Players such as Ynwie Malmsteen uses this thickness of string to achieve his sound.
Gauge 9 strings are a very common size of string and come on most Fender guitars such as Telecasters and Stratocasters.
Gauge 10 strings are commonly found on guitars with a longer scale length such as Les Pauls and SGs.
As a general rule of thumb you would want to put new strings on electric and acoustic guitars every 24 - 48 playing hours to keep that bright, clean sound and to avoid broken strings. As an example, if you play every day for an hour a day, you should replace your strings every month.
Electric Strings: Replace these at least every 2 months.
Acoustic Strings: Replace these at least every 2 months.
Classical Strings: Replace these at least every 4 months.
Bass Strings: Replace these at least once a year.
