I think when all is said and done, anything that is going to keep people on page for a lengthy period of time is going to be a key factor in helping you rank.

Google Watch Times Algorithm For Rankings?

Google was granted a patent this week that about how Google may rank some search results.
The patent appears to be aimed at video content, but it tells us that it might be applied to how long someone might watch a page, after they?ve been delivered to the page, even if that page doesn?t contain video. The page may contain images or audio, and a watch time for that content might be tracked as well.
