Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This has confused me a little bit, I'm not entirely sure what the distinction between the two are.

I think the searches is just the total number of searches that employers have executed, whereas the search hits are the number of times queries have return you as a result. It is a bit confusing.

Ok so the number of searches is not something specific to me? That makes more sense. It might help if the global stats (like searches and employers) were segregated from my personal stats. Just a thought. – Joseph Nov 19 '09 at 15:18

I clarified the language on the stats to make it more clear.
