    Does 1 min watchtime help a 3 min long video to rank? Or can the 33% retention hurt my video?

    It's best to mix the times up to make it look natural, 70% full viewing length & the rest between 30 sec to 1 min, that should do it.

    Only 70% to 100% watch time helps the video to rank, and also depends of what the competitors videos are...
