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

See screenshot of tags on my profile at Super User:

What do the numbers on either side of the tag mean? e.g. 53 Windows-7 x 83

try hovering for the tooltip ... – waffles Dec 24 '10 at 1:54
@waffles: I am confused by the tooltip. See my comment on RegDwight's answer. – studiohack Dec 24 '10 at 1:55
see the faq on meta for score definition ... it is the total number of upvotes minus total number of downvotes – waffles Dec 24 '10 at 2:04

Right number is the number of questions+answers you've posted with the tag. Left number is your total vote count received on non-wiki answers to questions with those tags.

The number to the right should be self-explanatory, thanks to the ×. Tag times X = you have asked/answered X questions with that tag. The number to the left is more confusing, but that's why it is actually explained in great detail in a mouseover tooltip.
