Dear Roshni

WHen you click on Link You tube channel , Select -
I own the YouTube channel I want to link to AdWords for video
If your YouTube account credentials are different from your AdWords account, you might have to log back in

It will Redirect you to You tube website , there you can connect , If for some reasons this is not working , You can reply back to me here .

Hi Shweta,

Thanks a lot for your reply. I tried the same way, as my Google adword account and YouTube accounts are different I selected that option which you have mentioned. But unfortunately when I click "Go To YouTube" I'm getting 404 error page n YouTube

Hi Shweta,

Problem resolved. Would like to share it with you as well.

If we have different gmail accounts for Youtube and Google aAdwords we should Select Someone else owns the YouTube channel I want to link to AdWords for video, and then click Next.
Copy the link provided to you and send it to the owner of the channel. The link provides an account-specific deep link to the account linking page in YouTube.
Once the owner of the channel links the account, the YouTube account will show up in the list of “Linked YouTube accounts” in your AdWords for video account.
