VIDEO: Can I Merge 2 YouTube Channels? Can I Combine 2 Google Accounts? What is a Google Account?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Fred Griffin Real Estate Florida Broker BK436788

Can you Merge 2 Google Accounts into 1?  What about YouTube?  What exactly is a "Google Account"?  Do you see it the way Google sees it?  How can you get Help from Google?  Can you log into Multiple Google Accounts simultaneously?


"Can I Merge Two YouTube Channels into One?"  The answer is "NO".  



    It is very helpful to have a deeper understanding of how Google sees your YouTube Channel, your Gmail Address, your Google+ Page, your Picasa Account, your Google Apps, and your many other Google Products.


     In addition, knowing how to Search Google Help is imperative.  WHO is answering your question?  How OLD is the answer?



     In the Video, Fred answers the Question (can I combine 2 Accounts?), and then explains what a Google Account is, from Google's perspective

     A brief demonstration of Google Help follows, with a quick wrap-up of Signing into Multiple Google Products (you cannot be signed into 2 YouTube Channels at the same time).







      Be sure to Heed the Warning about Not Attaching a YouTube Channel for your Company, Business, Service or Product to your personal Gmail Address.

Do NOT Link Company YouTube Channel to Personal Email Address

You CANNOT Merge separate Google Accounts

 A YouTube Channel WILL be Linked to a Google Account

Do NOT Delete your Google Account!

John, take it in small pieces  :)


Jerry, it took me a while to "see it from Google's Perspective".  Once we grasp the concept of a Google Account, it becomes clearer.   Although, it is still a pain when you switch from one Account to another.  I often log out of YouTube or Gmail, and then Whoops!  I have logged out of the rest of them.


Lanre, thanks for stopping by.  I try to keep these tutorials short (5 minutes max); otherwise it can be overwhelming.


Peter and Linda, nice to meet you here on ActiveRain!


Janet, thank you.  Glad to be of assistance.


Praful, when I did the research for this Blog, I encountered many frustrated, confused, and even angry people who are not thrilled with the concept of a "Google Account".   But it is what it is, and I am finding ways to deal with it.  :)
