If you go through the channel of these videos,You’ll see that not every video of them has grossed millions of Views and Let me tell you why so.

If you are a beginner and want your video to rank on Youtube for the title keyword of your video then nothing else is as important as getting a good watch time on that video.
What is meant by Average View Duration and Watchtime of a video?
When someone watches your video and Let’s say they started getting bored at 3 minute 14 seconds of a video and closed it at that moment than the view duration given by him to your video is 3 minute and 14 seconds.Now if we take average of all the time intervals when viewers started leaving your video then it will be termed as Average View duration of your Video.Now if we add all the view duration given by all the viewers on that video then this time duration (usually in hours) is called watchtime of your video.
To sum up,We can say that the average view duration of a video is a point around which people start leaving your video.Now i guess,You know why is it an important factor in ranking your videos . Youtube uses this factor to gain knowledge on whether your video is engaging or not? means whether your video is worth promoting alongside ranked videos or not?
