    So I have heard now your video ranking and channel is based upon VIEW LENGTH.

    So if I was to make a video that is over an hour long and it keep giving hour long views, I should start to dominate certain search tags no ?

    There are also other factors in ranking Youtube videos, dont just focus on this.

    Yes the retention is important but not the most important thing. There is actually a trick that will rank every youtube video at the top for specific keywords. Fast and Easy. Search for it. It still works.

    Retention is important, but you can just have all 100% views. You need to make it look as natural as possible

    I think bounce rate is always taken into account, not necessarily the view length. For example, if most people bounce off a video after just 3 or 5 seconds, then it's probably shit.
