How to link YouTube to a Google+ page with different email addresses

I’ve been trying for some time now to link (or connect) my YouTube account and my Google+ page, but the only problem is that both of these accounts have different email addresses. According to many posts I read around the web and Google support, there is no way to do this. At least that was what I thought.

Most people just go to the YouTube settings page and click the Link to a Google+ page, but only to find out that Google wants to create a new page, when you already have a Plus page. So there is a way to link these two accounts together with a simple trick.

I know what you’re going to say, how is this related to WordPress? Well, it isn’t directly related, but it will help as SEO to grow your business, which can potentially bring more visitors to your site. So it is indirectly related. This is why I decided to include this tip in my site.

OK, continuing right along… The first you have to do is to add the email account you’re using in YouTube as a manager for your Google+ page. To do this go https://plus.google.com/dashboard, click Managers from the top menu and click Add managers, then type the name or email address and click the Invite button.

Now sign in to your email account you’re using with YouTube and confirm the new manager notification.

Once confirmed, go to your http://www.youtube.com/account and from the Overview section, under Account Information, click the Link a Google+ page. And here is where the magic happens, now you’ll be able to choose your G+ page from a different account with a different email address. Complete the settings, and that’s pretty much all you have to do. Go back to your Google+ page and you’ll see a YouTube link in the top menu.

Enjoy!
