As of today Google shows the number of visits in search results.

Number of Visits in Google search results

Google is not mentioning it on its Help Central – Interpreting Results page and not anywhere else. So I can let my imagination run and have these assumptions:

  1. This only works if you signed in with Google Accounts.
  2. This number represents the visits on the date that follows (August 3rd in the above sample).
  3. Apparently it only counts YOUR OWN clicks. Acroterion has 1,273 unique visits in August 3rd. The term search engine solutions grabbed 33 visits, so it’s not SERP clicks number.

This just proves my long-standing theory that Google is tallying visitors clicks :)
