If you’re looking to get monetized on YouTube, you need to hit 4000 hours of watch time. While that may seem daunting to some, it’s actually pretty easy to do if you put in the work. You just need to keep in mind that the metric resets every 365 days, so you have to build it up over a year period.
Another thing to remember is that only public watch time counts towards your total number of hours. This means that if you made a video two years ago and it went viral, but you kept it private, it wouldn’t count towards your 4,000 hour goal. So, you’re going to have to create new content to grow your watch time.
How many days is 4000 hours?
An hour is a unit of time conventionally reckoned as one-fourth of the mean solar day (86,400 seconds), although some countries and regions use leap minutes to compensate for the Earth’s tidal deceleration. One day is approximately 86,400 seconds long, plus or minus a leap second in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), and the length of a civil day can vary by season and latitude.
