In tennis, if your opponent doesn’t hit the ball back, you get a point. However, if the ball doesn’t bounce inside the lines, it doesn’t count. We don’t count that point when we calculate your score.

We can say something counts or doesn’t count in other situations, too. Something that counts is important or meaningful. Something that doesn’t count is meaningless. “Your apology doesn’t count if I have to ask you for it!”
