I know of reports that say where lightning is most active throughout the world so I'm thinking that there is a way of tracking lightning strikes. Or is this just a generalization made using the frequency of thunderstorm activity?

That's damage reports, not quite the same thing as strikes, and averaged across the US so things might be different in particular locations. (Edit: keep reading down from there to see it broken down by US region, season, etc.)
Another NOAA page says that there are private companies that sell archive data, but doesn't identify them.
Depending what you needed the data for, you could write a program to watch real-time lightning monitoring sites (here's one for Alaska: http://afsmaps.blm.gov/imf/imf.jsp?site=lightning ) and build your own archive.
