No, as I understand it, the number on the side (which is 54 right now) is how many times your submitted link has been clicked/accessed by fellow users. The number in the (#) tells you how many comments there are. I hope the info is helpful. I believe the reason why so few people have commented or accessed your submitted link is because it has been posted before. If I remember correctly, this is the third time it has been posted. Not that it is not interesting, it's a good site, it's just that most of us have already seen it and commented on it in the other two threads.
