YouTube: How To Link Multiple Channels Under One User ID

Share and Like

This post is part of the step by step guide to successful youtube channel series. You can follow the series with the series home page.

In last two posts we have talked about the major success factors for YouTube and things which we should do after creating a channel. Now lets see how we can differentiate between the business channel and personal channel.

There is a restriction on YouTube that you can have only one channel per user id, which creates a problem having personal and business channel on the same account.

Most of the people are using different id’s for their business and personal channels but now you can club them together with the help of Google+ page.

If you have multiple channels under your id, here is how it will look:

YouTube Multiple Accounts

YouTube Multiple Accounts

Now you can connect YouTube Channel to your Google+ page and it will be acted as a separate channel for that page.

This way you can create as many business channels as you want, as long as you connect them to Google+ business page.

How To connect YouTube Channel to Google+ Page

Connecting YouTube channel to Google+ page also creates a tab on Google+ page and promotes your videos on Google+.

If your YouTube user id and Google+ page are using the same email id, than you can connect them from YouTube Settings -> Advanced -> Link Google+ Page.

This only works if you are creating a new channel. If you already have the old channel with a different email id, you will not be able to link them directly.

How to link YouTube Channel and Google+ Page on Different Id

If you have your YouTube channel on different id, you can still connect them together.

You need to add the YouTube id to Google+ page as a Manager. You can do that in Google+ page settings, under managers tab.

Just add the email id and it will send an verification email. Once you click on the verification link the email, that email id will be added as a manager of the Google+ page.

Once that is done you can connect them from YouTube Settings -> Advanced -> Link Google+ Page.

This will create a separate channel under the Google+ page and your main youtube id will be free for the personal channel.

Have you linked the YouTube channel to Google+ page?

      Hi Vidhyut, it is not possible at this point of tracks are not changeable..
      What I would suggest that create two videos and use annotations to notify user for other video…
