By default, the ViewsRecent managed property contains the number of views for an item within the last 14 days.

You can sort by the ViewsLifeTime managed propertyWhen the page is viewed, it will add the count to this ViewsLifeTime field. The SharePoint crawler will pick up the change.

Note: Only when the documents are viewed in the Office Online, they will be recorded.
