    Hi guys, my questions is as the title says: do you think high retention views would help your Youtube videos to rank high on Google? Because the common knowledge is that it will definitely help the video ranked high in Youtube search.
    Thanks for your inputs!

    only backlinks help ranking video on google. High retention views help only for ranking in youtube
     
  5. Retention Views will give you a much better chance of getting your video ranked and noticed.

    Retention views certainly help in youtube ranking. But if you want to stay atop YT rankings and also rank in Google, you have to do proper SEO for the videos. There is no other way.

    I beg to differ. I had a video ranked top in my niche based solely on views. However I had to add likes and subs to make it look real and prevent it from getting deleted. This is just based on personal experience

    High retention views help to rank any video on first page of youtube.
    For competitive keywords hr-views won't help rank on google you need
    backlinks! Everybody else that says otherwise is full of shit, because
    there are many liars here on bhw.
