Hello all - 

YouTube Red Earnings is now available in the Estimated Earnings report. Have a look! 

If you want to analyze your earnings and see how Red has affected them, I recommend you filter to only the US (Red is currently launched only in the US) from October 28th onwards and then compare Total Estimated Earnings to Estimated Monetized Playbacks and hopefully you'll see that earnings per playback has gone up! 

We'll be providing more metrics over time, like how much of your watch time came from Red, to help you understand better what impact Red will have on your earnings.

Let me (and everyone else) know if you've figured out a better way to analyze this data!

I got the offer for my custom G+ URL, then later got the offer for the custom URL for my youtube channel and G+ page. It became a marketing nightmare. The message said type in your custom URL, so I did. But that URL was not what I got. I've been working on branding the channel since 2010, back then my URL was over Youtube's character limit--by one stinkin' letter. Sheesh. 

Tonight I got a new offer to change the channel URL-and it's the correct URL, the one I want! But they want me to add on extra numbers--which won't work for branding. And doesn't seem right if I'm the first to claim the URL. Please +YouTube +YouTube Creators +Peggy K  Any suggestions on how to claim the offered URL without tacking on extra digits.

Get a custom URL for your YouTube channel (and Google+)

Confused by the new YouTube and Google+ custom URLs? I've put together answers to the most common questions..

Here's an overview - see the article for all the details:

> What are the eligibility requirements for a custom URL?

YouTube eligibility:
 support.google.com/youtube/answer/2657968  
Google+ Profile eligibility:
 support.google.com/plus/answer/2676340

Google+ Page eligibility:  support.google.com/business/answer/6068603

> How do I find the custom URL offer?

There is no way to request a custom URL. To see whether you've been offered a custom URL, check your email notifications, the Links box on Google+ Page or Profile's "About" tab or your YouTube notifications page (www.youtube.com/notifications).  

> How do I claim the custom URL?

Click "Get URL" or "Get yours now" on the notification..

> What can I do if I don’t like the offered custom URL or need to add a suffix?

Once the URL is set it can't be changed, so don't accept a custom URL you don't want!   If you don't want the offered URL you can wait for a possible new offer,  make sure your Google+, YouTube and website domain accurately reflect your identity, and send feedback to Google+ and YouTube.

> How can I change the custom URL once it's set?

 You can change capitalization, diacritics and accents on the letters of your custom URL by clicking "Edit" at the bottom of the Links box on your Google+ About tab, then editing your URL. Those are the only changes that can be made.

> If I add a new custom URL will the old custom URL for my YouTube channel still work?

Yes, your old /user/ custom URL will continue to work

> Why doesn’t my new YouTube channel custom URL display in the address bar?

I don't know why, exactly, but that's the case for everyone: when you navigate around YouTube your new custom URL may not display in your browser's address bar. It's not a bug  and it doesn't mean your custom URL is not set.

> Why hasn't my YouTube channel or Google+ Page been offered a custom URL?!

Make sure your YouTube channel or the Google+ Page or Profile it's connected to is eligible for a custom URL and doesn't already have a custom URL set. 

If your channel just became eligible, it's likely just a matter of waiting for an offer.

"What Kind of Man" isn't your average pop music fodder, but hey, this is Florence Welch. The torchy, hot redhead who makes Taylor Swift's psycho ex-girlfriend antics look like a romper room tantrum.
