Move your channel to a different Google+ Profile or Page in your channel's Advanced Settings

Start at www.youtube.com/account_advanced to begin the transfer process. The only requirement is that you are signed in as the owner of both your channel and the destination Google+ Page or Profile.

Learn more in the YouTube Help Center:
https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/3056283

I've written up more detailed instructions with screenshots here::

Hi +Cathy Brittain YouTube always shares the custom URL with Google+. So if you have a Google+ URL that is plus.google.com/+Example
the connected YouTube channel will always be
www.youtube.com/c/Example

What you are seeing just explains that.

Hi +Lori Ruff you likely need to verify the website associated with your Google+ Page (it will show a little tick mark next to it when it's verified). Here are instructions for linking your Page to your website: https://support.google.com/business/answer/4569085?rd=1

There's a FAQ in the YouTube help forum with more information about custom URLs: https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/youtube/CCbcrRSO2ng/discussion

Hi Youtubers. I have a crucial question. I am looking to get married this May. I want to do something unique as far as wedding videos. I set up a Youtube channel for the big day and I want to have guests upload their videos to this channel throughout the wedding and reception and all during the day. How do I accomplish this? Do I need to share the account and password with all 300 people? Thank you

Hi +jason roeseke I don't think there is a good way to allow people to upload to your channel directly. Using a 3rd party site as +Daniel voxelgeek suggested is one option.

Another option would be to have one trusted guest be the manager of your YouTube channel - have everyone upload their video to their own personal YouTube channel, and your channel manager could then add them to a Playlist.  

The solution I like best, though, if your guests use Google+, is to create a Google+ Event for your wedding, then have people upload their photos and videos to the Event - that creates a shared album that everyone with access to the Event can see.

Question related to YouTube Cards

In order to use the associated website card you need to associated the channel with a web site. 

How does this connect with, if at all, the web site the connected Google+ Page is tied to? 

Hopefully they do not need to be the same, for example I have a Page tied to web site A, but I can tie the connected YouTube channel to site B.

Also I did not need to add my Google+ Page's username as one of the owners. I'm not sure why you did have to do that, but I'm glad it worked for you.

Hello,
How Do I Contact My Partner Manager? I am trying to find out how to contact my YouTube partner manager so I can start the process on becoming a MCN.

We have over 50,000 monthly views and almost 30,000 subs combined on our YouTube channels,

Please point me in the right direction.

thank you

Thank you!  Is the issue that your Google+ Page/YouTube channel have not been offered a custom URL? Or is the problem that you want the custom URL that was associated with your old Google+ Page which has been deleted?

If that's the case, I recommend you send feedback to Google+ support from your Google+ Page's About tab, using the Feedback link at the bottom of the left menu. Explain which custom URL you expected to be offered and why.

Include your Google+ page and channel URLs:
https://plus.google.com/102584958459891028892
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDieuHxHu71-ccdSxs8gDvg

(They appear to be linked just fine to me)

Hi, I accidentally created a YouTube account for a Google+ account that I wanted linked to another Google+ Account. I had read something about it now being able to be done, to merge/link to correct Google+ and YouTube together (that are both under my accounts). However, I can't seem to get it worked out. I"m having a Google Hangout and I wanted to make sure I had to correct YouTube account linked to the Google+ account that I use, since it is verified. Can you help direct me, being trying for weeks?!  ~Thanks.

So glad I could help! Ironically i have been thinking about creating a podcast! It appears you have mastered this. I have seen a course by a fellow chiropractor advertised for $695.00! Do you have any suggestions on training etc? I also saw a course sometime ago by Lon Naylor he is a Camtasia expert. I have taken courses from him in the past and learned quite a bit! Any suggestions or insights would be greatly appreciated!! I just Got your app!! Very impressive! Thanks, Cheryl

Hi all,

I am trying to specify my youtube name, which, as I understand it, I have to do by changing my Google+ name.

It would like for it to simply be 'sonosublime', for ease of searches. However, Google+ requires that both name fields be filled out. I considered simply putting a period as the last name, but I worry that might affect Google searches, etc

It's a bit ridiculous. I simply want to have a 1-word name for my youtube account. Is there a way to do that?

Hi +Jordan M yes, the way you can use one name on a Google+ Profile is to put a period as your last name. That won't display anywhere. The alternative is to create a separate Google+ Page identity for your channel. You can do that at plus.google.com/dashboard - once the page is created, you just go to your advanced settings (www.youtube.com/account_advanced) to move your channel to the new Google+ Page.

Hey there Youtubers. I rep an MCN that is being flagged for unknown reasons. No copyright infringement, nudity or cussing... In fact all videos are fairly G or maybe PG rated stuff. No vid has been deleted or removed nor have we received any notice of such action in the future. Should we be afraid of being taken down if this continues? #flagged

Hi +Garry Ventura how do you know your videos are being flagged? If you are receiving a message from YouTube about  community guidelines violations it's worth figuring out what the issue is with your videos.

Is your YouTube channel connected to the wrong Google+ Page or Profile? Now you can move your channel!
 
New! Move your YouTube channel to a different Google+ Profile or Page

Is your YouTube channel connected to the wrong Google+ identity? Now you can move your channel. The only requirement is that you are signed in as the owner of both your current channel’s Google+ Page or Profile and the destination Google+ Page.

To start the process, open your YouTube channel’s advanced settings (http://www.youtube.com/account_advanced) on a desktop computer and click “Move channel to a different Google+ Profile or Page*

What will be transferred along with your YouTube channel:
> uploaded videos
> playlists, favorites and likes
> subscriptions
> subscribers
> legacy username (e.g. http://www.youtube.com/user/peggyktc)

What **will NOT* be transferred along with your YouTube channel:*
> custom URL set after November 2014 (e.g. http://www.youtube.com/c/PeggyKTC)
> channel name and profile photo/channel icon
> comments posted after November 2013
> sent and received private messages
> automated filter community settings

Transfer your channel from one Google+ Profile to a different Google+ Profile

Hi +Dave DeMarko if your YouTube channel is not connected to a Google+ Page, then you should enter the email you use to sign in to YouTube on the appeal form.

Hi, I've using YouTube for one of my brands. Now the thing is we've also recently started a Google+ page for the same brand, but the YouTube account hasn't been linked to that page.

Now I think the issue is the YouTube channel was created from the Google account, is there any way I can link this YouTube channel to my page. The google account is also the admin on the page.

Can someone help me out with this? Thanks!

Is it possible to create with Google+ communities/pages something equivalent to what used to be Group on Youtube. Upload videos by different users and send them to one youtube channel? Thanks

If you create a channel on a Google+ Page, you could later have it moved to your Profile if you change your mind.

I recently set up a G+ Community for my group.  We did this to take advantage of regular teleconference events using Hangouts.  But it looks like I have to now establish a Google+ page for the group, in addition to the Community, in order to have a YouTube Channel on which to hold the Hangout...
Is there a less complicated way to integrate Hangouts with our Community that does not require the additional steps of a Google+ setup?
It seems necessary to have the Google+ in order to establish the YouTube Channel for our Community...
