channel custom URL requirements
Originally shared by Peggy KGet a custom URL for your YouTube channel (and Google+)
Confused by the new YouTube and Google+ custom URLs? I've put together answers to the most common questions..
Here's an overview - see the article for all the details:> What are the eligibility requirements for a custom URL?
YouTube eligibility: support.google.com/youtube/answer/2657968
Google+ Profile eligibility: support.google.com/plus/answer/2676340
Google+ Page eligibility: support.google.com/business/answer/6068603> How do I find the custom URL offer?
There is no way to request a custom URL. To see whether you've been offered a custom URL, check your email notifications, the Links box on Google+ Page or Profile's "About" tab or your YouTube notifications page (www.youtube.com/notifications
). > How do I claim the custom URL?
Click "Get URL" or "Get yours now" on the notification..> What can I do if I don’t like the offered custom URL or need to add a suffix?
Once the URL is set it can't be changed, so don't accept a custom URL you don't want! If you don't want the offered URL you can wait for a possible new offer, make sure your Google+, YouTube and website domain accurately reflect your identity, and send feedback to Google+ and YouTube.> How can I change the custom URL once it's set?
You can change capitalization, diacritics and accents on the letters of your custom URL by clicking "Edit" at the bottom of the Links box on your Google+ About tab, then editing your URL. Those are the only changes that can be made.> If I add a new custom URL will the old custom URL for my YouTube channel still work?
Yes, your old /user/ custom URL will continue to work> Why doesn’t my new YouTube channel custom URL display in the address bar?
I don't know why, exactly, but that's the case for everyone: when you navigate around YouTube your new custom URL may not display in your browser's address bar. It's not a bug and it doesn't mean your custom URL is not set.> Why hasn't my YouTube channel or Google+ Page been offered a custom URL?!
Make sure your YouTube channel or the Google+ Page or Profile it's connected to is eligible for a custom URL and doesn't already have a custom URL set.
If your channel just became eligible, it's likely just a matter of waiting for an offer.Read the whole article for all the details, step-by-step instructions, and screenshotshttp://www.peggyktc.com/2015/02/get-custom-url-for-your-youtube-channel.html #YouTubeTips #GooglePlusTips #CustomURL
