        A simple image or script based counter would let you track views on cached pages as a separate request. You could display the view count on the cached page similarly, as a separate, simple, single-database-query request. Or you could just put the view count in "My Marketplace" since it matters most to the seller/lister.

        Kevin, how would it break the caching, at the time someone views the listing, a code snippet does the job to modify the cached page itself incrementing the counter +1, am I missing something? :)

        I don't mind not having listing view counters. If a user views a listing and doesn't do any action while viewing, wouldn't it be the same? It's just going to show listing popularity anyway.
