    Hi guys,

    According to the "minutes watched", Most of visitors to one of my YT videos watch half of the video, but my average view in % is 92% (if I have read it from right place!).
    So how is it possible please?
    I know that the high retention views are very important in YT eyes! So where should I really check in my channel to notice that? (which section shows it in my channel). I ask this because I am not sure if the % I saw was reflecting this fact that my video is very good in this regard! So where you guys exactly go to see if your video is high retention or not?

    Thank you so much.

    sign in on this thread, im curious about that too, although i got 5000 counted views on a video (HR) i only generated 0,30$ for 6000 minuts of advertising played.

    It depends on the monetised views many people run adblock.
    For ad revenu its not that important how long people watch your video since the only good paying commercials are displayed at the beginning.
    Make sure you enable all ad formats.
