YouTube is the second largest search engine on the internet, just behind Google. And as an author you have probably set up a book trailer or videos there already. YouTube allows you to earn money from your videos, and also to earn revenue by charging a subscription fee to users who want to watch your latest videos. YouTube also lets you create a live streaming event and a live Hangout On Air event. But did you know you can connect YouTube and your Google+ pages?
Connecting with Google+ will unlock great new features for your YouTube channel / your book trailer, and it’s done in less than a minute! Best of all: You can now get better Google+ page integration with your YouTube channel. Another benefit is improved SEO (Search Engine Optimization), which means for people to find your video much easier through Google’s search engines.
When you connect a channel with Google+, the channel will have a shared name and avatar with Google+, so choosing your right Google+ page is important – in case you have several Google+ pages, for example for one each of your books.
Unifying your branded channel identity across the two platforms (Google+ and YouTube) will make it easier for your viewers to find and connect with your cross-platform.
How to Connect YouTube and Google+
You can start the process by going to your advanced account settings at YouTube and clicking “Connect” with a Google+ page.
See Google’s info:
While using a full name from a Google+ profile might work well for an author who wants to build their author brand as an individual, but if you run a YouTube channel with your (self-) publisher name you should create a Google+ page with that publisher name – NOT your Google+ profile, which is your main page with your own name on it.
YouTubeAdviserBlog recommends this:
Once you have chosen a page option, click “Next” and that’s it – your YouTube channel is now connected to your Google+ page. This video shows also how easy it is to connect them, all it takes is just a couple of clicks, that’s all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-x5fFYQ4uo
