For quick tips on your youtube progress, we use the VidIQ plugin and keep on eye on their videos. I suggest that you subscribe too. So, the question is…
what effect does somebody watching your video at twice speed have on the stats.
- Youtube only records watch time as the physical time and therefore an 18 minute video will have a watch time of 9 minute.
- As only half the watch time is given, the retention rate is also halved. 50% retention rate!
So when you watch a video at twice speed, you only see half watch time….
What happens when you watch at 1/2 speed ???
