Google Plus adds VIEWS. What’s your number?
Google says the number equals the number of times your content has been seen by other people, including your photos, posts, and profile page. Google+ is trying to make a point about how active the site is and views are public by default so you might want to switch them off if yours are low.
While people and pages have always shown how many other people have circled them, Google has now added the ability to see how many times your profile or page has been Viewed.
For Google+ Pages, the +1 count has been replaced with their follower count. It would appear that Google has removed the option to +1 a Page and now users can only circle Pages, just as they would other users. so a page becomes more like a regular person. According to Google Help, "Views" tell you "how many times your content has been seen by other people, including your Photos, Posts, and the page [or profile] itself." So this confirms that the View Count is an aggregate number that includes every time your posts have been seen
