I'm curious to know what is your average audience rentention in your video with the most views.

if you have a low rentention rate, What do you think is making people leave your videos

My video with the most views (1,439 views) has a retention rate of 25.4%. It was titled "tornado warning at our campsite" we didn't experience a tornado, but there was a warning and rained heavily for 2 hours while we stayed in our tent. It was our first time camping.
Audience retention is necessary to rank your videos. Videos are overcrowded on YouTube with lot of similar tags. So YouTube ranks the video depending on audience retention. Higher retention video will be displayed on search results even if other videos were tagged using proper SEO. Well My audience retention is not really HIGH but I am striving to increase it.
