If you have just started your own YouTube channel then there is one thing every YouTuber wants on this channel and what’s that? That Blue ( Ok! Grey) Verification Mark after the channel name. That small tick mark is a big achievement of every YouTuber. But, there are some YouTubers who have a lot of views and a lot of Subscribers but still haven’t got verified! There are many reasons for it and in this article, we will give you some tips to get verified on YouTube. There are some criteria for getting verifies. When it comes to verification, there is one famous question – ‘Should we have 1K+ Google Plus followers to get verified on YouTube?’ Well, this is totally Bullshit and normally doesn’t matter.
TIPS TO GET VERIFIED ON YOUTUBE:
1. GOOD STANDING:
Before you apply for verification, make sure that your channel doesn’t have any sort of copyright strikes or claims. If you have one, you have to wait til it expires to apply for the verification!If you have a copyright strike and you still apply for verification then there are 100% chances that your request will be rejected!
2. GOOD BRANDING ASSETS:
Done with the first step? Ok, let us move to the second now. Make sure that your channel has a decent profile picture. Now, what is a decent profile picture? Well, if you have a channel with your own name then use your own picture as a profile picture. Also, make sure that you have used the same profile picture and banner on the Facebook Page, Google Plus, and other platforms! And Yes! Your channel should be connected to Facebook and Twitter.
3.GOOD AMOUNT OF VIEWS & SUBSCRIBERS:
This is one of the defining criteria to get verified on YouTube. Make sure you have a minimum of 2-3K subscribers. Also, every content you upload should be original. Again, we repeat that it is not necessary that you should have 1K+ followers on Google Plus.Also, a good amount of views is also required!
4. VERIFIED WEBSITE:
Yes! Google Plus followers don’t matter but if you have any website linked to your Google Plus Page then make sure that the website is verified and has a small checkmark next to the website!
