Until recently, the total number of views a video received on YouTube was a significant factor in assessing and ranking the video. However, as a result of the recent modifications to the YouTube watch algorithm, time has replaced views as the most important component in determining the rankings of videos.
Watch time, or to put it another way, audience retention, is a metric that measures the entire amount of time users spend viewing your movies. In general, videos with a significant amount of view time are given a better placement in the search results. As a result, YouTube improves and searches for videos that have received a lot of views.
Because of this, when your video has more views, YouTube will promote your channel to its users. It does this via the use of suggestions and searches, which may eventually result in more views.
