Hi Geetha,

Note: Please add a valid record id as parameter for the page as mentioned below -

Please find the following solution which is tested and working -
Helper Class:
public class SchemaGlobalDescribe{
    public static String findObjectNameFromRecordIdPrefix(String recordIdOrPrefix){
        String objectName = '';
            //Get prefix from record ID
            //This assumes that you have passed at least 3 characters
            String myIdPrefix = String.valueOf(recordIdOrPrefix).substring(0,3);
            //Get schema information
            Map<String, Schema.SObjectType> gd =  Schema.getGlobalDescribe(); 
            //Loop through all the sObject types returned by Schema
            for(Schema.SObjectType stype : gd.values()){
                Schema.DescribeSObjectResult r = stype.getDescribe();
                String prefix = r.getKeyPrefix();
                System.debug('Prefix is ' + prefix);
                //Check if the prefix matches with requested prefix
                if(prefix!=null && prefix.equals(myIdPrefix)){
                    objectName = r.getName();
                    System.debug('Object Name! ' + objectName);
        }catch(Exception e){
        return objectName;
Controller Class:
public class PageViewCount {
    //assuming your custom object as Account
    Sobject sObj;
    public String recordName {get;set;}
    public Integer countVal {get;set;}
    public PageViewCount() {
        recordName = '';
        countVal = 0;
        Id recordId = (Id)ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('Id');
        String objectName = SchemaGlobalDescribe.findObjectNameFromRecordIdPrefix(String.valueOf(recordId).substring(0,3));
        system.debug(recordId+'@@objectName: '+objectName);
        //sObj = (SObject)Type.forName(objectName).newInstance();
        sObj = Database.query('select Id, Name from '+objectName+' where Id=:recordId limit 1');       
        recordName = String.valueOf(sObj.get('Name'));
    public void recordCount() {
        //assuming you are maintaining only single record in this object.
        List<AddsViewList__c> addsLst = [select Name, count__c from AddsViewList__c limit 1];
        if(addsLst == null || addsLst.isEmpty()) {
            AddsViewList__c addsView = new AddsViewList__c(count__c = 1);
            insert addsView;
            countVal = Integer.valueOf(addsView.count__c);
        else {
            if(addsLst[0].count__c == null)
                addsLst[0].count__c = 1;
            countVal = Integer.valueOf(addsLst[0].count__c);
            upsert addsLst;

Visualforce Page:
<apex:page controller="PageViewCount" action="{!recordCount}">
        <apex:pageBlock title="Number of Page Views">
                    <apex:outputLabel value="Name:"/>
                    <apex:outputText value="{!recordName}"/>
                    <apex:outputLabel value="Count:"/>
                    <apex:outputText value="{!countVal}"/>
