    It all depends on for how long your listing has been live and which upgrades you've applied.

    The number of views (31) isn't anything to get excited about. An average 7-day Flippa listing that is featured once should get in the vicinity of 500 views, unless the headline is absolutely horrible and/or the site doesn't generate any revenue.

    What's strange, though, is that almost everybody who viewed your listing (29 people out of the total of 31) became watchers which is something I haven't ever seen before. Did you tell your friends about the listing by any chance?

    EDIT: Then again, this also happens when you re-list your site (all watchers of your previous listings automatically get added as watchers to the new listing), so if it was a re-list then this would explain it.

    31 views and 29 watching - seems a bit suspicious, that it is natural :)
    310 views and 29 watching - would be more likely

    People watch listings for many reasons. Number of watchers doesn't have a lot to do with the number of potential buyers.

    I don't list on Flippa but I do a lot of coaching and third party support. My clients typically run 3 day listings with startups and if they listen to good advice they average 100 views a day. By the time the listing ends they typically have 250-300 views and a successful sale. That should be your goal.
