    Hi Guys, For audience retention, YT mentions: Absolute audience retention shows the views of every moment of the video as a percentage of the number of video views. Pay close attention to the first 15 seconds of every video--that's when viewers are most likely to drop-off.1: why the viewers drop off at the first 15 seconds?2: I noticed that it is true for my YT Videos more or less as well, so for a current video how to encourage the visitors to stay and watch more please? By annotation or by anything else, Any method?Thanks.

    If i am not wrong , you are talking about the purchased views from clickback like sites, where the viewers have ticking meter to view the page for only few seconds in order to gain those points, so that is why they view your video only for 15 Seconds.

    If you find real people viewing your thread, then it shall not happen. If your video interest the person , he will view it full , else he will also leave like many others ( problem which have have referred to now )

    Hope it helps !
