Create a Google+ Page for your Brand, YouTube channel, Business or Organization

If you want to use Google+ as a brand, business, organization, band or any identity other than your personal Google profile, you can create a Google+ Page. A Google+ Page is linked to a Brand Account, which can have multiple managers. Brand Accounts can also be used for YouTube channels, Google Photos and Google My Business listings.

Google+ offers the same features for Google+ Pages and Google+ Profiles. A Page can create and participate in Communities, run Events, and, of course, share, +1 and comment on posts.

If you have an existing Brand Account (for example created with your business or brand's YouTube channel) you can add a Google+ Page to your Brand Account.
  1. Sign in to Google+ (plus.google.com) as the Owner or Manager of the Brand Account
  2. Click your profile image at top right, then select your Brand Account from the menu
  3. Once you have switched to your Brand Account, click Enable Google+ on the left menu
  4. Read the Pages terms of service, then click Enable again to complete the process


If you do not yet have a Brand account, you can create a new Google+ Page and Brand Account together.
  1.  Sign into Google+ (plus.google.com) with the Google account you want to Own the Page
  2.  At the bottom of the left menu, click Google+ for your brand
  3.  The Google+ creation page (plus.google.com/brand) will open in a new window
  4. Click Create Google+ Page
  5. Name your Google+ Page and Brand Account
  6. Read the Pages terms of service, then click Enable again to complete the process
Once you have created your Google+ Page, you can add a YouTube channel.

Read on for detailed step-by-step instructions.


Add a Google+ Page to an Existing Brand Account


Creating a new YouTube channel for a business or brand also creates a Google Brand Account . If you decide you want to use Google+ with your YouTube channel identity, you can add a Google+ Page to that Brand Account.

1. Sign in to Google+ (plus.google.com) as the Owner or Manager of the Brand Account

2. Click your profile image at top right, then select your Brand Account from the menu



Note: if you have more than 10 Brand Accounts, you may need to click All your Brand Accounts at the bottom of the menu.

3. Once you have switched to your Brand Account, click Enable Google+ on the left menu


4. Read the Pages terms of service, then click Enable again to complete the Google+ Creation process




Create a new Google+ Page and Brand Account


If you have not yet created a Google identity for your brand or business, you can create a new Google+ Page together with a Brand Account.

1. Sign into Google+ (plus.google.com) with the Google account you want to Own the Page

2. At the bottom of the left menu, click Google+ for your brand

A closer look:

3. The Google+ creation page (plus.google.com/brand) will open in a new window

4. Click the red Create Google+ Page button



5. Name your Google+ Page and Brand Account



6. Read the Pages terms of service, then click Enable to complete the process




Once your Google+ Page and Brand Account has been created you can add a profile photo, cover image and "About" information. You can also add a YouTube channel to the Brand Account (www.youtube.com/channel_switcher).

How to Disable or Mute Replies to your YouTube Comments

NOTE October 2015: The option to disable replies is only available for comments you can view on Google+ - posted between November 2013 and August 2015. It is still possible to disable all replies to your comments in the Google+ settings for the Page or Profile connected to your channel under "Who can comment on your public posts?".As YouTube separates from Google+ that option may disappear, and I'll try to keep this post up-to-date.

----------
Do you like posting YouTube comments, but hate the replies? You can easily disable replies - or mute notifications of replies - after posting your comment, as long as you can find your comment post on Google+.

You have two options:

1. Disable replies to all your YouTube comments and Google+ posts in your Google+ settings

2. Disable replies to individual YouTube comments by changing the settings on that post on Google+

Yes, you'll have to visit Google+, but only for as long as it takes to change the settings (and you might disco…
