Hi, thank you for contacting My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your Google and YouTube account question.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

Google accounts include a YouTube account nowadays, since the acquisition of YouTube by Google several years ago.

So if you have a YouTube account, you have a Google login associated with it. That's where you should create the Google Plus account - that way it is 'linked', in that it is the same account as the YouTube account.

What other details do you need about this process? please let me know in Reply, so that I can address other details that you may need instructions on.

Ok I have a google account and the youtube account but I still need help because I can't see how to do it. would you be able to connect to my computer to walk me though it. Here's the problem as well. When would you do that because I had to give up last night waiting for you. Would you be able to contact me again in 5 hours because it's now the middle of the night. I had to get up to check if you had answered. Thanks for your help. I really hope we can resolve this today, Saturday.

I'm hoping that you can help me this morning with this Google + that I'm having problems with
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

I'm in the United States, pardon me for being unavailable at certain hours.

Go to

and (if you are signed in to your YouTube account) use the link to

Move channel to your Google Account or a different Brand Account

(under Account Information) which is this link:

- good so far? if so, let me know and I will instruct you further - if not, stop where the problem is and let me know how far you got, please.

I managed to do the channel myself because I need to get this done today. My problem now is that my original channel has been lost with all the subscribers. do you know how I can get that back or has it been lost forever
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Actually your instructions have missed out a part. if you don't already have a channel you have to create it. That's what I found out for myself this morning whist panicking that I wasn't hearing back from you. The instructions that I found from Google didn't say all your stuff would be deleted forever so if you are able to let me know if I can get it back or if it has all been lost that would be helpful.

I thought once you were contacted by an expert that the conversation would be in real time. This is not really working for me. I seem to have to hang about for quite a time to get a response.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If you were able to help me with getting back my original channel subscribers that is what would be helpful. Thanks
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

I am not sure I have the power to get back a channel that is gone, in general, I'm sorry to say.

But in specific: was the channel Deleted or was it simply de-configured from its link with YouTube?

(or if a YouTube channel, was it deleted, or de-configured from its link with Google+ ?)

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When going through what Google said to do you are told to delete the channel.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

No, I did not tell you to delete any channel: It's highly inadvisable.

I cannot help you with a deleted channel - my instructions were different from that.

Since I cannot help, I regret that I must Opt Out in favor of another Expert. I have done so.
