YouTube Channel - Link to GMB Account

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

One of our clients came to us with a Personal YouTube Channel - not connected to any of their Google My Business Listings. The YouTube channel is owned by a completely separate gmail account. Is there any way to transfer the channel to the email that manages the GMB account for all of their locations?

 

This is the current Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7lqrdq_4ikjzpwYq6V5PaA

Hi @Local Team yes, a YouTube channel can be moved to a different Brand Account, or from a Google account to a Brand Account.

 

You can see the instructions here: 

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

 

The Google account the YouTube channel is currently linked to must be the owner of the destination Brand Account, at least temporarily.

 

Note that if you want to transfer the channel from one Google account to a different Google account, you can use the Brand Account as an intermediary account for the transfer. 

 

Also: 

Note that some content can't be moved: All comments, sent and received messages, verification badges, and automated filter community settings. You'll see a warning if your channel has this content.
