INTRODUCTION ABOUT VLOGGING ON YouTube
From the year of its establishment, YouTube has grown to a platform where it has become wherewithal for people just not confining to showcase their talent but also to earn a handsome sum. With the increasing popularity of YouTube among masses from searching for tutorials to entertaining videos, people have made it as part of their professional life. But it is not easy as pie because this platform has some rules and norms on how one should be paid. Anyone with valid identity can have their account on YouTube to view the stuff but when it comes to reaching other people through your own content a separate channel has to be made where your earning depends on two major factors:

Number of Subscribers
Subscribers are the main prerequisites of your earnings on YouTube. It is the norm that a channel should have 1000 norms. A person can gain views from his or her videos but making them to subscribe your channel is quite tough.

Watch time is the time that is counted when a video is viewed by subscribers. The guidelines of YouTube say that it should be 4000 hours that is 2 lac 40k minutes. This time is taken into account when viewers start watching the video.
Attaining these two conditions is very difficult especially when each and every channel is taken into account by YouTube itself once they are fulfilled.
Technology has made it very easy for this company to find if a channel is having genuine subscribers or fake ones. Moreover, watch time is completely viewed where a person operating the channel himself cannot increase its watch time by viewing the video again and again.
Monetization (YouTube Partner Program)
Monetization starts when you sign a YouTube partner program where one becomes entitled to pre-roll advertisements that are paid one. With a certain number of clicks on an advertisement, an amount is paid to channel head. All these revolve around the number of viewers and watch time.
