It states that, only 54% of the videos present on the internet are considered as a viewable one.

In the meantime, Google advised,

“Advertisers seeking viewable impressions should look at high viewability sites that engage in best practices for video viewability,” “In general, advertisers should consider investing their spend in inventory comprised of larger video ad sizes to enhance viewability.”

The statistics report didn’t include YouTube ads, which is around 91% viewable, this is because other companies are placing video ads next to the content or in the bottom of the pages. But YouTube is totally a video destination; this made the rate to be always at the peak.

Google has used viability definition set forth and declared that around 50% of the video are only visible on the screen, for two consecutive seconds at least. Google mentioned that, usually advertisements were playing in the background while users were looking other contents in the website. Around 76 percent of the video are played in the background tab or off the current screen and the remaining were abandoned in two or more seconds. Google mentioned that, viewabality rates are much higher than the mobile devices and tablets than that same on computers.
