Attention creatives and marketers that manage various Google+ accounts and YouTube channels!
The Google Channel Transfer Tool is your new best friend! Google released the Channel Transfer Tool that helps users match a YouTube channel with a different Google+ account. The integration of Google+ and YouTube was designed to help users control both of these accounts and their interactive communities.
Is your YouTube Channel connected to the wrong Google+ Business Page or Profile?
The owner of the YouTube channel has the permission for this process.
Take these Ninja Steps:
1. Login to the YouTube channel that you would like to connect to a new Google+.
2. Select your YouTube icon in the top right corner. Then select the gear symbol located in the top right-hand corner for ‘YouTube Settings.’
3. This will bring you to the Overview Page with your account information. Select ‘Advanced’ next to your Name and logo.
4. On the Advanced page select ‘Move channel to different Google+ Profile or Page’. YouTube will require you to re-enter your account password.
5. ‘Select Desired Page or Profile’ to see the list of available Google+ account options. YouTube only allows users to move channels to Google+ accounts that you own. For example, if the Google+ account is connected to a different email address then it will not appear in your list of available Google+ account options.
6. Select the ‘New Google+ Account’ to connect to your YouTube channel and select ‘Move Channel’.
7. This process will move over your YouTube account’s videos, playlist settings, subscriber base, subscriptions and Channel username.
Are there any items that will not transfer over?
Comments and messages that originate from Google+ will stay with the original profile or page. Any private messages or comments posted after November 2013, and custom URL and channel icon created after November 2014.
