Hey there,

In one word, yes.

Ideally, you should be using YouTube Analytics: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/1714323?hl=en

If you're bent on using Google Analytics as a separate interface, follow the steps under "Google Analytics Account ID" on this page: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2976814?hl=en . There's a good article with a few handy tips here: https://www.klipfolio.com/blog/connect-youtube-channel-google-analytics

Cheers,
Arjun

Thanks for your reply and getting links for the info.

Listen you know how they verified youtube channel in place o website in their g+ page ? -

https://plus.google.com/+TseriesTelugu/about

What ill do is i can set analytics account for my youtube channel then ill put my youtube channel in my g+ page like them and when the time will come to link website (to get verify badge like them) which is youtube channel in this case then ill use verify by analytics method right ?

But i tried that yesterday because when i am choosing analytics method in my search console then it asking me to put the analytics code in the website but i cant do that because in our case its not website its a youtube channel.

So can you tell me how they have verified (tick badge) youtube channel in their g+ page instead of website.

Fill this: https://support.google.com/youtube/contact/ytgplus - they'll link it for you.

However, for the verification, YouTube doesn't accept general requests to receive name verification. If your channel meets the qualifications for verification, you may receive the verification badge. If your channel has fewer than 100,000 subscribers, it's usually not eligible for a verification badge.

As for proving ownership, what are you looking to get out of it from search console, that you won't in YouTube Analytics?

Cheers,
Arjun

1) I also tried by doing this.And i choose analytics method because obviouslly i cant use HTML tag , html code and other methods.So i setup analytics account for the youtube channel to verify in g+ page same like they did then its giving me error - http://i.imgur.com/ZIu3Ddf.png

"Verification failed for https://www.youtube.com/channel/U........................... , using the Google Analytics method. We could not find any Google Analytics tracking codes on the index page of your site"

Ya i also know that , even by analytics method i cant verify my youtube channel in g+ page like them then how to verify a youtube channel in g+ page ?


2) And if you know one website can be verify in 2 different g+ pages ?

Hey there,

Thanks for getting back!
1.a) There's no way to force the "verified badge" for youtube on Google+ - Google awards it based on certain criteria like subscribers, etc.
@Sue G: this next bit is applicable to you too -
1.b) However, you still can link the youtube and G+ page. Follow these simple steps: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/3056283?hl=en&ref_topic=4628105 - It works even if there's no G+ account that's currently linked.

It sounds like you're following these steps: https://support.google.com/business/answer/4569085?hl=en - Please don't.

2) How verifying the same website for multiple G+ pages works: https://plus.google.com/+MarkTraphagen/posts/d8kPtvZt9GD

I hope this helps!

Cheers,
Arjun

Hello Arjun ,

How are you , i hope you are doing well.

=> I saw many companies have verified their (Channels as well as g+ page) in bulk.Like if one guy is running its media channel e.g "AOX" for different cities of that country like "AOX City1" "AOX City2" AOX City3" "AOX City4" "AOX City5"And i saw he has verified all its channel and g+ pages also linked to those channels.

So what i am thinking how they did that is - This can be done by verification of local G+ pages.Because if they would be able to verify their g+ local pages (Its easy process In which owner needs to verify all his business locations listings in bulk via .csv file and google verifies that) then they would also be able to verify their youtube channels linked to those local pages.

If they are using that method now the question is how to create a youtube channel via local page ?

Hey,

I don't think the verification for the youtube channel that you mentioned earlier (with the checkmark on the shield) is available for via an application or a specific process. There are minimum requirements, but nothing that will guarantee you the same.
If one channel is verified, and linked to multiple G+ pages as described in the steps in my previous response, it would show up as verified for all of them, but getting the verified shield in the first place is the problem.

This is where you can create a youtube channel for a specific G+ page, if you're already logged into G+ with the email address that owns the G+ page: https://www.youtube.com/channel_switcher
