    Curious who knows the difference / benefits of buying geo-targeted views over high retention when ranking on YouTube. I'm from the U.S. so I was wondering if I should get geo-targeted U.S. views?

    I've got a decent sized youtube channel from original music but I am looking to get into covers and want to optimize ranking for these new songs that get released.

    I always hear about "high-retention" but so many providers sell geo-targeted for more money, curious what the benefit is of geo-targeted?

    Thanks!

    From what you mention I don't believe geo-targeted views will help your specific case.

    Geo-targeted views are going to help encourage views from a given location. I can imagine local businesses using this strategy as they would benefit more from having their videos get in-front of local viewers who can actually benefit from their services.

    Instead, since you are producing music, it's better if more people view your videos.

    If you have lyrics in your videos it would be beneficial uploading translations and CCs to your video as this will encourage views beyond just the U.S.

    Fortunately for you, music is a universal language ;)

    Cheers

    Geo targeted views can help you target a specific area and if the location and competition is not that big you could even end up in Trending section of that area.
    Also providing views from a specific area is not that easy and requires some heavy work this they are not cheap.
