Google My Business linked to wrong YouTube account, not linked to Adwords

Google My Business is linked to the wrong YouTube account, one that has zero videos, zero views, zero followers.  It is also not linked to my Adwords account. How do I correct these two problems?

Hi Bob P: I don't know about AdWords, but you can move your YouTube channel to the Google+ Page/Brand Account associated with your business.

There are instructions for moving your channel here:

https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/3056283

Make sure that you are a manager of the Brand Account you want to move your channel to.

To do that:

1. Sign in as the owner of the YouTube channel

2. Open your Brand Accounts list myaccount.google.com/brandaccounts

3. Make sure the Brand Account you want to move the channel to is listed there.

If it's not, the Google account that owns the YouTube channel must be made a manager of the Brand Account first.

Once you've done that you can sign in to YouTube and go to Settings > Advanced youtube.com/account_advanced and click "Move channel to your Google Account or a different Brand Account"

If you have trouble you may want to post a question in the YouTube help forum:

I think google has made this a bit confusing.. having an account, a different business page, 2 different youtube sites, then the google plus, and the google pages...  then add in the map and the googlebusiness my business pages..   I hope that someone integrates all of this into one.  I was afraid to merge my youtube site, in talking with google tech support it seems sketchy at best at this point and you could end up with something that they can not undo.   if you do merge, please post how it worked out.

I don't have any brand accounts. I have one Youtube channel and 3 locations for Google My Business. The Youtube channel is connected to the wrong location.  How can I fix this? It's extremely frustrating.

not sure they have the ability to help - I have been waiting about a year - and it is still not something that has been fixed.  best option i was given is to support each different channel (x3) and update all content all the time.  This is frustrating - as owners of all accounts we should be able to combine and then redirect.  hope you get an answer, i never did.

Hi

 

Where you had a Brand page created with a Google my Business entry they were divorced last October 2017.

 

It seems best to deprecate the old divorced GMB created Brand page.

 

Make a new Google+ Brand page, for each location if you want to  for all as the Brand. And then attach a Youtube account to that.

 

Make a last Post in the GMB Brand page asking Followers to follow the new page.

 

Andrew.
