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.
