How to Link YouTube and Google+ Pages, Multi-Admin Management Now Possible

Share on

It was a long time ago that we discussed how to link your YouTube channel to a Google+ profile, and not long after that, the future capabilities to have multiple “YouTube managers” who can run your channel page without giving out your personal login information.  Rejoice, everyone, linking your Google+ page to your YouTube channel is finally here, or at the very least, it’s being rolled out.

Your public YouTube videos will appear on both the channel and the page, and the multi-user and multi-admin capabilities for Google+ pages are now live for YouTube channels so that you can have multiple users uploading and managing videos on your channel.  Let’s show some pictures.

Google Plus Business Page Integration with YouTube Channels

This new capability allows you to “showcase” your YouTube channel on a Google+ page.  The differences between a profile and a page are shown here, but essentially, pages are for organizations and profiles are for individuals.  Multi-admin user capabilities have been around for Google+ pages for awhile, but it still didn’t have integration to YouTube.  Now it does.

How to Connect YouTube to a Google+ Business Page (Step-by-Step):

Go to your YouTube account and go to the Advanced Settings (https://www.youtube.com/account_advanced):

This is what you’ll see:

Click next and then the following screen shows up.

You can now see all the awesome things you’ll be able to do with this integration.  Multi-admins of the Google+ page can now manage the YouTube channel, and public YouTube videos will appear on both the channel and the page.

When you decide that what you’ve wanted all along is “OK” then you’ll see:

And you can easily switch between accounts:

This is something that should have happened a long time ago, obviously.  But, hopefully the wait was worth it and that it works exactly how everyone wants it to.  If it doesn’t, you can always do this:
