Google recording # of visits?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Has anyone noticed Google recording of # of visits to a particular page
offered through its SERPs?

I didn't think much of it when I saw a time showing up next to a SERP result
a coupla days ago. But then today  I clicked my own link from the SERP and
then went back one page then refreshed. It showed the time and subsequently
followed by the number of visits to that page.
I'd suppose it's only recording my own clicks, right? that is according to
my own cache?

this never existed in the past, has it?
