YouTube is the second-largest search engine in the world. And yet, many people are unaware of how to unhide their YouTube channel from Google’s search results. However, it’s not as complicated as you may think!
In this post, we will be discussing how to unhide a YouTube channel and what steps need to be taken for it to work.
- When unhiding a YouTube channel, first make sure that you have the URL of your channel. To find this information, go to youtube.com/channel_name and copy the link from there (the one ending in “/”).
- The next step is to log in to Google Search Console with your Gmail address and password for your own account. This can be done by clicking on “Sign In” at the top right-hand corner of any Google page, then selecting “Search Console.”
- Once logged in, click on the gear icon near the top left-right corner of the screen and select ‘Channel Settings.’ Next, look for ‘Unhide’ under Channel Status, allowing you to upload or input a new URL for the channel.
The next step is to copy and paste your new URL into Search Console, then hit ‘Save Changes.’ This will now unhide the YouTube account from Google’s search engine results. It may take up to a week before this change goes live on Google’s search engine results page. If you cannot access your channel after that time, it might be worth contacting google or youtube customer support to make sure there was no delay in implementing changes made through their end of things.
The last thing left would be reuploading videos that were previously removed by mistake- either because they had content violating copyright laws or containing inappropriate material (such as nudity). Though the process may seem tedious, it is the only way to unhide a YouTube channel from Google’s search engine results.
Remember that when you do this, your account will now be listed in Google Search Console but not on google.com/youtube because of privacy considerations (they don’t want competitors finding out about your new URL). So if anyone searches for “yoursite” or “blogname,” they won’t find anything unless they literally know what their address already is and how to get there! If you also have an email list or other social media site where people might ask questions about your YouTube page- make sure that before publishing any information on those channels, you update them with your updated YouTube URL as well. Otherwise, they may not be able to find it!
In conclusion, when you are trying to unhide a YouTube channel from Google’s search engine results, there are only four steps that need to be taken for the process to work effectively- and one of them is simply waiting up to two weeks before giving up on any changes being made through Search Console or Youtube themselves.
