    Geo targeted views supposedly help you rank in a certain region or country. I don't think it gets as detailed as a state by state basis. I can't really confirm any of that.

    Retention views are in reference to how long the video is viewed. The higher the retention the better. I think this was put in place to combat low retention boosted views.
