What is whois count?

When I export a list of my domains I have the option of including the whois count. What is the whois count? The number of times the whois has been searched? If so is that count only whois searches done through Godaddy or total from anywhere?

 

Thanks!

Hello @damonclarke!

 

Thank you for posting. Whois Count is a metric for how many times the whois for your domain is checked through our whois search only.

Are these WHOIS lookups each an individual person performing the search and indicative of some human interest in the domain or they part of some automated process?  How can these numbers best be used?
