Hi:

When I check the whois record in the networksolutions.com, it shows the following information of any domain name:

Current Registrar: NETWORK SOLUTIONS, INC.  
IP Address: 209.61.177.22  (ARIN & RIPE IP search)  
IP Location: US(UNITED STATES)  
Record Type: Domain Name  
Server Type: Apache 1  
Lock Status: ACTIVE  
Web Site Status: Active  
DMOZ  7 listings  
Y! Directory:  see listings  
Secure: No  
E-commerce: No  
Traffic Ranking: 1  
Data as of: 26-May-2004  

------------

Now my question is what does it mean by :

Traffic Ranking: 1

The traffic ranking value listed on our Whois database is something that our system pulls up from the Internet depending on certain variables. However, Network Solutions do not have full access or control over this information. This is just an additional information that our Whois provides regarding a particular domain name.

and here are other people wondering about this option and its accuracy:
