I'm not sure what that's supposed to store! Does anyone have an idea?

Number of page views maybe? –  user27414 Nov 9 '10 at 21:25
    
@Jon, if you look at the data dump, most people have a 0 in there... and some of the senior people on this site have a couple... it's not possible that this is page views... can it be that a founder has only 15 page views? –  Mohamad Nov 9 '10 at 22:02

It's the number of user profile views. I believe these are IP-unique as well.

Most of the data in that column is 0 because there are a lot of users with < ~10 rep... not many people look at those kinds of profiles.

In Data Explorer, try:

SELECT Views, Id AS [User Link] FROM Users ORDER BY Views DESC

There is data there, you just need to concentrate on the most active users.
