Similar to your Instagram Stories and Posts, you can see how many times your IGTV videos have been viewed, liked and commented on. Here, you need to focus on audience retention. Every time a user watches a video of at least three seconds, it is "viewed" on IGTV. If the view count is high, it doesn't mean someone watched the entire video.
Audience retention data, on the other hand, lets you see how long you've kept your audience's attention.
You also need to focus on the Latest Mailing Database average view percentage rate. This metric can tell you whether the viewer watched the entire video, or skipped it.

St. Louis manager Mike Shildt had a premonition, a feeling about his 2021 Cardinals.
"I'm tired of saying this because I sound like a broken record," he told reporters on a postgame Zoom se sion. "We're about to break it, because we're about to get hot. We just haven't been able to play with a lead. We need to get out in front, keep playing clean defense and string together more consistent at-bats. Like I said, we're about to get hot.
The Cardinals are red hot at the moment, winners of 16 consecutive games. The manager knew his team was capable of greatne s, though even he might not have seen his club rattling off a franchise-best win streak, topping the mark set by the Gashouse Gang Cardinals in 1935.
And he probably didnt expect it to take so long for his club to find its stride. See, that quote was indeed from a postgame news conference, Korey Stringer Jerseys but not one in September. Or August. Or even July. Shildt said those words after a 10-1 lo s to Cleveland on June 8.
His Cardinals did not, in fact, get hot in June. In fact, they lost 11 of their next 17 games. The Cardinals were two games over .500 when Shildt made his prediction and they spent most of the next three months bouncing around the .500 mark. When they started this current 16-game winning streak, they were you gue sed it exactly two games over .500, at 71-69.
And now, they cant seem to Minnesota Vikings Hoodies Sweatshirts lose. So what's happened? Let's take a look at what's been different lately.
BroNeill and Bader
Lineup stalwarts Paul Goldschmidt (31 homers, 98 RBI, 144 OPS+, 6.1 bWAR) and Nolan Arenado (33 homers, 103 RBI, 122 OPS+, 4.3 bWAR) have been outstanding in September, but thats what the Cardinals expect from those two All-Stars.
Whats taken the lineup from mediocre to excellent? Harrison Bader is an elite defensive center fielder, which has been the reason hes stayed in the Cardinals starting lineup for most of the past four years, even during long stretches when he looks lost in a land of tempting but wayward sliders. There have been flashes at the plate, though, when his combo of power and speed make him look like an All-Star. After batting .152 with a .421 OPS, Bader is having one of the very best months of his career in September.
During this 16-game hitting streak, Baders batting .400 with a 1.179 OPS, four homers, nine doubles, 12 RBI and a pair of stolen bases. And hes done this from primarily the No. 7/8 spots in the Cardinals lineup. Wyatt Davis Jerseys Thats a nice boost at the back end, eh?
And then theres Tyler ONeill. Speaking of looking lost at the plate, ONeill posted a 70 OPS+ during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. Hes been much more consistent through the 2021 season, and ONeill is having the best month of his career in September. In 26 games, he has 11 homers, 27 RBIs, 26 runs scored, a 1.054 OPS and even four stolen bases.
Its not a coincidence that surge coincided with Shildts decision in late August to move ONeill up to the No. 3 spot in the Cardinals order, which puts him directly behind Goldschmidt and directly in front of Arenado. Batting between those two, hes seeing better pitches to hit and hes mashing them regularly.
Let the defense work/throw strikes
The Cardinals have an excellent all-around defense, with Gold Glove winners at third base (Arenado), first base (Goldschmidt), catcher (Yadier Molina) and left field (ONeill). Baders outstanding in center field, and Dylan Carlson (right field), Tommy Edman (second base) and Edmundo Sosa (shortstop) are all plus with the glove.
In fact, Dan Chisena Jerseys the Cardinals lead baseball in Defensive Runs Saved this year with 79, five ahead of the Rangers and Rockies. But for the first couple of months of the season, most every pitcher not named Adam Wainwright just refused to throw strikes. In May, the Tyler Conklin Jerseys Cardinals were last in baseball with an average of 5.02 walks per nine innings. That is, by far, the worst single month BB/9 ratio for any team in any month this season.
It would be one thing if the defense was bad and thats why the pitchers tried to get outs out of the strike zone. But the defense is excellent, so the lack of control was especially frustrating. And its not surprising thatsome of the worst walk offenders John Gant checked in at 6.6 BB/9 in 76 1/3 innings and Johan Oviedo was at 5.3 in 62 1/3 innings have been replaced in both the rotation and the bullpen.
The Cardinals team walk rate in September? Its 3.04, almost two walks better than it was a few short/long months ago. Thats far from the best in baseball that number ranks 10th in the bigs but its an example of the improvement made, helped by the additions of veteran starters Wade LeBlanc, J.A. Happ and Jon Lester. Throw strikes, let the defense work. Its a simple, succe sful formula.
Genesis Cabrera and Kodi Whitley have combined to throw 23 2/3 scorele s innings this month. Luis Garcia had a 25 1/3 inning scorele s streak that was finally snapped on Sept. 19.
But the biggest piece of the September bullpen has been Giovanny Gallegos. Hes the primary piece that came from New York in the deal that sent Luke Voit to the Yankees. Gallegos took over the closer role from Alex Reyes, when the All-Star hit a rough patch in August. Gallegos has made 13 appearances in September and only allowed hits in four of those games.
He had a hiccup outing against Milwaukee early in Dalvin Cook Jerseys the month, but since then he has an 0.84 ERA with 10 saves in 11 appearances, with 18 strikeouts and only four walks.
