I am unfamiliar with your instructables in particular but I can lay down some general ideas. I assume a view counts as anyone who clicks through to your ible.

When I receive new instructables in my RSS feed I see if it is in some way relevant to my interests and seem like something around my skill level. Also important factors are the name and the picture that accompanies it.
These factors are also important when sifting through search results.

Once I open a link quality may vary but at least they got the view ;)

You can't force something to be popular.. Marketing is a massive industry for a reason.

Personally making an x-wing isn't really my cup of tea so I wouldn't normally click through, but my preferences do not apply to everyone.

You have two choices:
1. Find out what most people look for on the site and make another instructable on that topic and almost guarantee views.
2. Keep doing what you like and do your best to present it. Screw the view counter..
