How to restore a deleted Google+ Page (and its YouTube channel) at Google My Business

A Google+ Page is like a sub-account of your main Google account. It lets you use a different identity for Google+ or YouTube than your main Google account identity or real name.

In September management of Google+ Pages was moved from Google+ ( to Google My Business ( That is where you can manage your existing Google+ Brand Pages or create a new Brand Page.

You can also restore deleted Google+ Pages on your Google My Business dashboard.

Why is this important? Until very recently, a Google+ Page could not be deleted if it was connected to a YouTube channel. The channel had to be moved or deleted before its Page could be deleted.

Now a Page can be deleted even when it's connected to a Google+ Page, which also deletes the Page-connected YouTube channel.

But if you did inadvertently delete your Page, don't panic! Your Page and its YouTube channel can be restored in your Google My Business account.
