Hello. I'm here about trying to link this account with my YouTube account, but I can't figure out how to. Everything I've read so far tells me to go to "online video" but I don't see that anywhere. I've been searching and reading help things for the past hour, but nothing is working. help?

Hi Dylan, 

 

The first thing you need to do is create a new campaign and then select "Online Video" in the very bottom of the drop-down list.  From here, you'll see an option under the "Shared Library" for linking your YouTube account.  On the right, you'll notice an area to enter you YouTube login credentials.

I am having an issue on getting the YouTube account linked after this step...

 

I have created a YouTube page, where I uploaded my video, AND Google Plus page (like the instructions require), however, I still can't get the YouTube page to link.

 

Anyone else having a similar problem?

Hi Lacey,

 

It would be helpful if you provide which instructions are you following. From what I've experienced, creating a Google+ page isn't necessary to link your AdWords account to YouTube.  

 

Here's a quick video on how to link your YouTube account with AdWords (once you're logged into your AdWords account):
