What does keysigning policies mean?

I was adding someone's public key and in the output of gpg was something referring to a link to their website in which something along the lines

signature levels

0: no indication;

1: personal belief but no verification, useful for signing pseudonymous IDs;

2: casual verification;

3: extensive verification.

What is that? It's the first time I hear about such a thing.

Ultimate (Only use with your own keys!)

This is what it means to assign a “certification level” to a signature.
