"Readed" is not English--it isn't a regular verb. The past tense is "read" –  simchona Mar 19 '13 at 18:34
7 views sounds fine. But you might be interested in the opinion of the folks over at ux.stackexchange.com –  coleopterist Mar 19 '13 at 20:14

7 views is fine and you may also use:
Views: 7 or PageViews: 7

Here is a demo from a website that sells page trackers, to get an example of how the commercial people display this info. Here is a good explanation from Google for terms like Page views.
