Note: This new YouTube Video Monetisation Criteria will be implemented from 20th February 2018.

As Youtube Says: On February 20th, 2018, we’ll also implement this threshold across existing channels on the platform, to allow for a 30 day grace period. On that date, channels with fewer than 1,000 subs or 4,000 watch hours will no longer be able to earn money on YouTube. When they reach 1,000 subs and 4,000 watch hours they will be automatically re-evaluated under strict criteria to ensure they comply with our policies. New channels will need to apply, and their application will be evaluated when they hit these milestones.

Here are the new rules to get monetization enabled on a Youtube channel

1. Now a youtube creator requires 1000 subscriber and 4000 watch hours in the last 365 days.

2. The last 365 days or 1 year will be counted from the date of application.

3. You should not have any policy violations, Copyright strikes and community Guidelines strike on your channel.

So, It’s not about getting 10k Views on YouTube Now, It’s all about making good contents which a YouTube viewers want to view.

It’s obvious that when you make contents which are relevant and interest-grabbing then you automatically get watch times and Subscribers.

 What Do you need to get 1000 Subscribers and 4000 Watch Hours?

I am sharing my 1-year experience of YouTube to get out from the trouble of getting 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours. You just need to follow these steps to gain Subscribers and watch times.

1. Make good content – You need to make contents which are relevant and audience attention grabber. For this do a little survey on what you want to create and also use proper mike for sound and a good mobile or DSLR camera to record.

2. Be aware of Copyright and Community Guideline strikes – Try to create own content, do not copy-paste more like Video Parts, Images, Music, Names and more.

Note: After using the contents of other creator or Copyright owners, If you are giving credit to them in your video or description, then it is not a guarantee that they will not claim a copyright on you.

So If you are using contents of other creators then you must have their permission to use. I will suggest you to use free contents. Like youtube Free Music and Free images available on Google.

3.  Make Awesome Thumbnail – On YouTube Thumbnails are audience attention seeker. So try to make a proper and awesome thumbnail of your video according to video contents.
