I was wondering if anyone else has been experiencing very little views on new content. I have noticed since the start of 2013 I have not had more than 25 views on newly uploaded content and very little sales on those files.  Definetly in the past this was not the case.

From the Contributor FAQ:

The file view counter is only triggered when a logged in iStock member with a buyer account looks at a file close up page i.e. the page that files can be directly downloaded from. A contributor viewing their own file page will not register nor will any other contributor viewing that page. A file being moused over and viewed with the loupe function in search results does not count either. Views will only count if they are made by an active non-contributor iStockphoto account.

Essentially the way views are counted changed from "any view" to simply "buyer views" in September.
