How To Link Your YouTube Channel With AdWords
Before you set-up your video ad campaigns you first have to link up your YouTube channel to your Google AdWords account. This will also enable to you to create call-to-action (CTA) overlays and view additional statistics within your adwords account.

Call to action overlays enable you to share more information about the content of your video, raise interest in your channel, other videos, or additional websites.

Here are the steps to link YouTube To AdWords:

*Log into your YouTube Channel
*Click on your profile image
*Click on Creator Studio
*Click Channel
*Make sure your account is verified and it is in good standing.
*Click Advanced
*Scroll down where it says “link an adwords for video account’
*Click “link an adwords account”
*Here it says “Sign in to adwords for video” so you got to get your customer id
*Copy your customer id then you paste the it into the box
*Click “next”
*It says “assign a name to the adwords account”
*Leave all the boxes checked because you want to see view counts and call to action, view remarketing and engagement
*Click “finish”

Now you can see that your Adwords account
is linked to your YouTube channel.

Here are 3 important things to keep in mind:

1. Linking your YouTube channel to an AdWords account allows you to promote your video and view additional statistics.

2. You can control the data that the AdWords account can access. This includes view counts, remarketing, and earned actions.

  1. Thank you so much for uploading this! I have always wondered how to do this and this was very helpful. When I set this up, will it enable me to earn money on Youtube?

  2. Great video +isitebuild 

    Thanks for making such an easy to understand video for the wider audience on such an important piece of information.

    Without Linking Your YouTube And AdWords Accounts, you will not get the level of control in your Adwords for Video account that you will need for your business.
