I accidentally read this morning, and want to share it with everyone, because I didn't send the link so I'll write down this below: Not all watch hours count towards the YouTube Partner Program threshold. What counts as a valid public watch hour: Watch hours gained from videos repeated set public Watch hours gained through the following types of video do not count towards the YPP threshold: Private videos Unlisted videos Deleted videos TrueView campaigns. oh "TrueView campaigns" perhaps this is the latest in this, unfortunately, I can no longer increase hours of watching in the channel with cheap ads true views campaign. Yes, I just saw it today, have you found anything new in the YouTube update? Please tell me.
