    You can create multiple channels on one Google account. To do this, go back to "YouTube Settings."

    Instead of the button where it was simply written “Create a channel”, you see the button “Show all channels or create a new one”.

    • Set a custom URL.
    • You can move your channel to a brand account
    • Delete your channel.

      Hi, guys. In this article, we will talk about how to add links to your YouTube channel so that guests and subscribers can go to your other resources and social networks.
      Links in the channel header play a significant role, they are very often used by YouTube users. By inserting links to your social networks, project groups, or website, you are guaranteed to convert some of the traffic from YouTube to subscribers on these resources.
      You can add any links there, even to affiliate products on your main topic. Many people do this, thereby monetizing their channel from scratch.
      If you have a new channel, the links in the header are not displayed immediately.

      To add links to the YouTube channel, you need to go to the "About" section, where we made a description of the channel yesterday, and find the "Links" button below the description.

      Or the second option is to move the cursor over the channel heading and click on the pencil that appears in the upper right corner, where you need to select the “Edit links”.

      A maximum of 5 links can be displayed in the header, you can select the desired number and click "Add".

      Click "Finish" and see what happened in the header.
      Everything is fine, if necessary, then you can change something.

      In the previous article, we figured out how to choose the necessary keywords for your YouTube channel theme, and in this article, we will make a good description of the channel on YouTube.
      Why do you need a YouTube channel description?
      Any text is the best source of information for search engines. The search robot will not be able to recognize and understand images, videos, or audio as accurately as text. This is why channel descriptions, titles, and video descriptions play a very important role in successful development on YouTube.
      Moreover, you only need to spend 20-30 minutes writing the text once and then make adjustments if necessary. Don't be lazy, read on, and make your project one more step more successful.
      Writing a cool and original description
      In general, the description should fully reveal the idea and subject of the channel. Tell the user who will read what it is about.
      You need to keep within 1000 characters. It is advisable not to write the text in one continuous paragraph, but to break it down nicely and make it easier to read.
      To begin with, you can type a template for your description in any text document, and then copy it and paste where necessary.
      A few recommendations:
      Use keywords in the text. You just need to insert them naturally, and not just solidly separated by a comma. Search engines are not fools either, they will see all re-optimization, apply filters, and “publicly lower” you in the search results. Do not forget about brand queries. Do not try to sell something in the channel description and insert links. The links will still be inactive. Describe about the project, what it does, and what videos are published on it. Show your expertise in the niche that the channel is dedicated to. You can tell something interesting about yourself or other authors of the channel. You can specify the days and times when new videos are released. If you have any contests for subscribers on your channel, you can make an announcement and talk about prizes. At the end of the description, you can add a small call to subscribe. Adding the description on YouTube channel
      To add a description on your YouTube channel click on the "customize channel" button on the main page.

      Now on the customization page navigate to the "About" section and click on the "Channel description" button.

      Write your channel description in the box and click "Done" when finished.

      That's all sorted out.
      If there is anything to add about the description of the YouTube channel, then write in the comments.

      This is the third step in which we will figure out how to choose and where to write the keywords for the YouTube channel.
      Do not confuse channel keywords with tags that are written separately for each video. We'll talk about tags when we upload a video and optimize it. Yes, in fact - it is the same, but we will consider them a little differently.
      How to choose keywords for the channel?
      Keywords are popular user queries that describe the direction of your channel. They are needed to make it easier for search engines to determine what your channel is about.
      To recognize them, you just need to think logically. Determine who your audience is and what they should search for in order to reach your channel. Next, several services are included that will allow you to find additional ideas for keywords.
      Sort your theme into keywords
      We recommend opening a text document and writing out all the queries that come to mind first.
      For example, the subject is sports. Let's say that a channel with this theme will publish videos about how to do exercises, nutrition tips, recipes, motivational videos, weight loss, and so on.
      We think that your target audience will gain in the search.
      We write out all the ideas, then we select the best.
      Analyze competitive channels
      Here we'll use a special plug-in for YouTube, which allows you to spy on the keywords of any channel for free. It is called vidIQ Vision.
      Register an account at www.vidiq.com. Install the vidIQ Vision plugin for the browser (i.e. Google Chrome, Firefox) Go to YouTube and log in to the plugin. You will notice it, it will be displayed to the right of the video. After authorization, the statistics for each video will also be shown on the right. After you install this plugin, go to any channel on your subject and see all the keywords that are used on it.
      So you need to go around various projects in your subject and write out all the relevant keywords in the table.
      Brand Queries
      We recommend adding brand queries to the list of keywords. Those queries will be used to search for your YouTube channel. This can be the project name, first and last names of the channel's authors, nickname, and so on.
      Use search engine hint services
      The last step is to use Google or other search engine tooltips and keyword databases.
      It is easier and more convenient to use the Google service. Now we need to select the most popular and appropriate search queries, as well as find additional words.
      Thus, you will create a list of the main keywords for the YouTube channel in your niche.
      Where to add channel keywords?
      It remains to add the keywords to the settings. But first, in a text document, you need to put all keywords that consist of more than one word in quotation marks, otherwise, they will be split into separate words.
      "cheapdeveloper.com" "remote work" "freelance work" "free guides" "earning on the Internet" Next, follow the instructions
      Go to YouTube Studio.
      Click on settings and select channel
      Enter your keywords in the keywords box and save it. We'll go back to this tab later to configure other features. We have already sorted out the keywords.
      Write the remaining questions in the comments, and we will be happy to help.

      Is a good channel name important?
      In general, yes - the "name" of the YouTube channel is a very important element in its further promotion, it is your brand, which, in order to become successful, must be remembered and spread throughout the Internet.
      But no matter what ingenious name you come up with, success will still depend on the quality of the content you upload. Therefore, do not get too hung up and do not think that your channel is not gaining popularity from the chosen name. Come up with a simple and understandable name for your target audience.
      A few principles of what it should be:
      Simple. Easy to read. Easy to remember. Not long. Transmitting the meaning of the channel and its theme. In English, or translate. Consider your primary audience. Also, do not violate the basic rules of YouTube and create an account with the name or nickname of a famous person or project.
      How to come up with a YouTube channel name?
      Instructions that are suitable for both boys and girls. Let's start generating options.
      It's better to write down all your ideas!
      First of all, we recommend opening a text document or taking a blank sheet of paper with a pen, where we will write down everything that comes to mind.

      Even the most stupid ideas. Usually from the most stupid ideas, brilliant options appear. When the whole list is in front of your eyes, it is easier to come up with something new and play word forms with those that already exist.
      Based on channel content
      What topics are you planning to shoot and upload videos to YouTube? Think about how you can combine all this in one title. So that a person who gets on your channel immediately understands what they can find on it, and whether they should subscribe to it.
      Give the channel your name
      We want to say right away that the channels on which the author’s personality is revealed become faster successful and popular. It’s more interesting to follow a living person who is doing something than a channel that just uploads videos, and it’s not clear who the author is.
      Channels are often called by their first and last names. A name becomes a brand, it is listened to and trusted. The more trust you have, the more your product or service will be bought, the more advertisers will want to buy ads from you, and so on. Your brand on the Internet is a lot of money.
      Analysis of competitors and popular channels
      After you have brainwashed yourself, remove all ideas from your head, you can turn to the search. See the names of similar and popular channels.
      Tip: beginners should not compare themselves with such large projects that have millions of subscribers. But when you watch their videos, try to find constant ideas and tricks that they use, and apply them to your project.
      Many people use various additions in the names, such as: TV, channel, shows, club, vlog, diary, magazine, etc., somewhere they are really consonant and are well suited to the name or nickname. Try it, maybe something will suit you. When compiling a list of options, read them out loud and listen to how they sound, like or not.
      Name for the channel's subject
      In another way, we can say that the names are sharpened for the search query of users. When the name makes it completely clear which videos are placed on it.
      For example: cartoons, travel, earning money on the Internet, recipes, and others.
      Generate names for your channel with keywords, but make sure that it is not long.
      Use other people's brains
      You can find creative guys on any freelance exchanges or you can arrange a contest among your acquaintances and friends for free somewhere on a social network, maybe they will give you cool name and fun ideas.
      Take your time and work with the list
      Now that you've added dozens of name ideas to your list, play with phrases, rhymes, synonyms, and so on. Choose the best option, you can consult with your friends, read them the options and listen to their opinions.
      If you don't have any more ideas, postpone this session until the next day, in the morning, or during another session, you may come up with some original ideas. Usually, this happens when you sit and strain, nothing comes up, and you go with friends to walk on the street or play sports, different brilliant ideas start to climb into your head, just have time to write them down.
      We hope this article will help you in choosing the name for your YouTube channel.
      If you have questions or suggestions, then ask in the comments. We wish you all good luck.

      Hello to all novice YouTubers and video bloggers. Today we are starting a new large section dedicated to the development of the channel and earnings on YouTube.
      We will analyze YouTube from A to Z in a clear language so that everyone can figure out where to start and how to act.
      A little background
      For a few years, we have been working remotely, studying, and creating various sources of income through the Internet. YouTube wasn't our priority before until we uploaded a few videos to it and saw that they started to bring us passive income.
      Took a video and uploaded it to the channel, users watch it, and you just make a profit from it for the rest of your life. But it's not enough just to shoot and upload a video so that the channel starts to make money, you need to know at least the basics of video editing, channel optimization, and marketing.
      The development of the channel can be compared to the development of a regular blog. If you look at the steps, it is choosing a niche, creating a content structure, design, configuration, and so on. Today we will put it all on the shelves so that you understand the approximate plan for working on your channel.
      You can call these articles free training for the Internet profession "YouTube channel Manager". In remote work today, this is one of the most popular specialties.
      Where do I start?
      Let's arrange a small reality show “how to become a video blogger” with a full report in the form of educational content on this blog.
      We won't start from scratch. As we have a channel that is currently filled with videos, most of which are “gray”, that is, I downloaded other people's videos and uploaded them to my channel, some with copyright infringement. I plan to get rid of them soon and leave only my author's content.
      The biggest problem that stops
      The biggest problem to start shooting video on a channel is not the technical ability to set everything up, but the psychological one. Many are afraid of the camera. It seems that everyone knows what to say, and when you turn on the recording, your head becomes empty.
      Step-by-step plan for YouTube channel development
      The whole process can be roughly divided into 9 stages:
      Selection and analysis of the channel topic. Monetization Drawing up a content plan. Create and configure a channel. Registration. Video recording and editing. Uploading and optimizing videos. Tracking results. Promotion and advertising. The main thing, following all these points is to find your style and develop your strategy. Of course, everything you do at first will look like someone else. But this is not scary, it is a law of nature, since childhood we have been copying everything that we see and hear.

      Let's now look at each stage separately, what it consists of.
      Step 1. Niche selection and channel topic analysis
      The study of the channels. Select multiple topics for which you will shoot video. Analysis of the topic that you have chosen, whether it is interesting and relevant to YouTube viewers. Define your target audience. Study your competitors. Drawing up an approximate structure of your niche. Step 2. Monetization
      Someone will say that you do not need to think about earning money at first, but we do not think so. The success of any project depends on how much money it brings. The more it brings, the more the authors want to make high-quality and useful content for their viewers.
      Learn all the ways you can make money on YouTube. Search for how you can monetize your niche. View ways to earn competitive channels. Making a list of affiliate programs on your topic. Step 3. Content plan
      Learning to plan content. Making a list of at least 100 ideas for videos. Step 4. Create and configure a channel
      Creating a channel on YouTube. Correctly configure it. Channel optimization. Step 5. Design
      Ordering the design of the YouTube header or self-design. Learn the ways and secrets of designing screensavers for videos. The order from designers to design templates for videos or your own implementation. Stage 6. Video recording and editing
      This is a separate topic that requires constant development and improvement.
      Learn to shoot live video. Learn to shoot screencasts (video from the screen). Learn to make at least a simple editing of captured videos. Selection and purchase of good equipment. Step 7. Upload and optimize the video
      Learn to upload a video to a channel. Learn how to optimize your video (collecting requests, compiling catchy titles, tags, descriptions, etc.). Step 8. Track Results
      Learn how to digitize monthly. Understand YouTube analytics. Step 9. Promotion and advertising
      Learn free and paid ways to promote your YouTube channel. Set aside a monthly advertising budget. Conclusion
      Here, an approximate work plan, which we will analyze in detail in separate articles.
      The next article will be as an instruction for the category about YouTube, in which we will collect all possible questions and answers.
      Thanks for your attention. Leave comments and ask questions that you need to understand in the section about YouTube.

      Square Enix published a translation of the session of answers to investors ' questions about its financial results in the first half of the current fiscal year. Chief Executive Yosuke Matsuda confirmed that sales of "The Avengers" were below expectations and that the action role-playing movie has not yet paid off its production budget.

      Earlier it became known that Square Enix sold only 60% of the planned circulation of "The Avengers". It is estimated to have a budget of between $170 million to $190 million, with initial sales of only about 3 million copies. Because of this, the company's HD division lost approximately $ 62 million in the second quarter.
      Matsuda noted that if The Avengers hadn't been released last quarter, the HD division would have remained in the black. However, the losses were caused not only by the non-recouped development costs, but also by the marketing campaign, which suffered due to delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
      That being said, Square Enix still intends to make it profitable with post-release support. Last week, the developers announced that Kate Bishop will appear in The Avengers on December 8th.

      Flax seeds are an amazing superfood that combines a huge variety of different nutrients and is useful for all body systems. Even in ancient Greece, a decoction of Flaxseed was used as an anti-inflammatory agent, and for more than two thousand years, doctors have strongly recommended adding it to the diet. What is so useful flax seeds and how best to use them in food, we tell in our material.

      What are the benefits of flax seeds?
      Flax seeds contain the plant compound linamarin - it evenly envelops the walls of the stomach, creating a protective film on it that prevents harmful toxins from being absorbed, and protects the stomach mucosa from ulcers and gastritis. In addition, the high concentration of omega-3 and -6 fatty acids in flaxseed significantly increases the elasticity of blood vessels and heart muscle, strengthens them, and helps in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Even if you don't have heart problems right now, regular consumption of flax seeds reduces the risk of them appearing in the future.

      Flaxseed is a source of antioxidant compounds. They protect body cells from free radical damage and have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. Antioxidants are the real elixir of youth: they nourish the skin from the inside, prevent the signs of aging and hyperpigmentation and protect the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays.
      Flax seeds are rich in magnesium and phosphorus, which are essential for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. They increase concentration and performance and improve memory. A number of active substances in flaxseed strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons, prevent respiratory diseases, and restore the acid-base balance of the body.
      What's more, flax seeds are essential in your diet if you are looking to lose weight. They help burn visceral fat, and due to their high nutritional value, they provide long-term satiety and significantly reduce the risk of overeating.

      How to add flax seeds to your diet?
      The most important thing: it is useless to add whole flax seeds to food - the hard shell of the seed is beyond the strength of our stomach, which means that not a single nutrient will be absorbed by the body. The seeds can be crushed, or they can be soaked in warm water for 1-2 hours (then the shell will become soft and easily digested, and useful substances will enter the body).

      Further, in chopped or soaked form, flax can be added anywhere - here you are limited only by your imagination. Flax seeds are a great addition to your morning porridge, smoothie, or avocado toast. They can be sprinkled on salads, vegetables, and meat dishes, added to cream soups and stews.

      Wedding is considered to be one of the most important event in life. Many prepare for it in a special way, and some begin training in just a few weeks. There are families who do not celebrate this event, and there are those who celebrate in the family circle.

      If the city residents celebrate it in more modest conditions, the wedding takes place in auls in all traditions. The Turkmen observe all the conditions for the celebration.
      Ancient traditions

      A long time ago the Turkmen wedding according to traditions and customs was a little different from the modern one. Marriages were concluded when the bride and groom were at an early age. The parents themselves chose the pair, so matchmaking was not, everything was already decided for them. The Council of relatives, which was called "genesh toy", decided on the date of the wedding and the conditions of the celebration.
      Most often, the wedding tried to do on Monday, because this day was considered the most successful. The heralds - "Darcy" - was announced in almost all the plain on this festive event. After that, the next day, the most respected woman in the village came to the bride to start sewing wedding clothes. Also gathered all the necessary things for the future life of the young: carpets, household items and more. In order to sew a dress, also selected a special day.
      But the fabric on the sewing it was supposed to deliver from the house of the groom. Open the dress was engaged in a respected woman, who was also a mother of many children. The remains of the tailoring of the dress disassembled the young bride, it is believed that it will bring happiness in family life.
      Bride's dress

      In the Turkmen wedding, the girl's dress was always decorated with a large number of jewelry. They were sewn in the chest area, usually it was done not only for beauty, this location served as a talisman.
      When the bride went, the dress issued a characteristic ringing, it scared away the evil spirits that have always surrounded the girl, because they were amazed by her beauty. In Turkmenistan, the bride has always tried to protect from evil forces not only melodic sounds, but also a variety of amulets, such as braids of camel hair, pig teeth, and even on the hands of the bride wore protective bracelets. Thus, the wedding dress could weigh up to 40 kg.
      Place of celebration

      Often the wedding in Turkmenistan takes place in the groom's house, but it begins with the bride. They slaughter as many cattle as the groom's family will. Most often it was about 10 goals per family.
      On the solemn day to the bride came early in the morning girlfriend, they sang funny songs and escorted her into family life. Daughter-in-laws girls also sang songs, but the way they were humorous, they were discussing the various qualities of the groom. But his relatives, on the contrary, tried to praise him, and talked about the best traits.

      Was a comic tradition which talked about the fact that the bride have to put on the wedding robe-a Bathrobe. It was called "Puranic". All this happened before the arrival of the wedding caravan.
      Wedding Costs
      All funds that go to the wedding are provided by the groom's family. The tradition of bride price still exists today. In the modern Turkmen wedding it is also customary to give feces. In all regions it is different. It can range from three to ten thousand dollars.
      It is very expensive to play a traditional Turkmen wedding. Usually a large number of people are invited, even in the smallest villages it is not accepted to invite less than 300 people. After all, if someone is not invited, it will be resentment for the rest of your life. In large cities, the number of guests can reach thousands.

      Preparation for the celebration
      According to the traditions of the Turkmen wedding, the young married for love. All preparation required considerable material and moral expenses. In rare cases, the bride was taken from distant relatives.
      If earlier permission from the girl was not asked, now the parents consult with their son or daughter, after which there is a matchmaking. Young people are allowed to see each other, to agree on any issues and the date of the wedding. Very important on a special day is the role of the priest, call him Mullah, he makes the engagement before the young go to the registry office.
      The Wedding Planner

      It is no secret that the Caucasian holidays fascinate with their beauty, a large number of guests, beautiful dresses and a rich table. Gaumarjos – traditional Georgian wedding is currently held in compliance with ancient rules, although modern innovations have made their adjustments. The article will tell about how the newlyweds are now welcoming guests in this country.
      Old national customs and traditions
      It is now the Georgian wedding is preceded by an acquaintance of the future spouses. It used to be a custom when the groom stole his future wife. He may not have disappeared now and is still practising in distant mountain villages.
      To the parents of the girl almost never came back because her honor has been desecrated. In order not to cause discontent of neighbors and numerous relatives, parents had to take this step. Often women committed suicide because of unwillingness to marry the unloved. Of course, there are many cases when there was a strong and friendly family.
      Georgians are very hospitable people. On such a great holiday is still accepted to invite all relatives from the bride and groom. It is polite to accept. This causes offense, and can even put in a special book the names of people who did not share the joy of the family. That is why, following the tradition, Georgian wedding gathers a huge number of people.
      After the wedding night, the mother-in-law took out a sheet from a bed of newlyweds to prove chastity of the daughter-in-law. If the girl was not a virgin, she was thrown out in disgrace.
      On the wedding table, young put only sweets that none of the guests did see how the wife eats.
      Previously, the holiday, when a new family was formed, was celebrated only in the house of the bride or groom. Despite the fact that now a lot of European learned in the celebration, a lot of rituals left. But about them in order.
      This is the Georgian name for the first stage – matchmaking. Of course, now young themselves meet and choose a mate, but without the approval of the parents will not be a ceremony. There are exceptions, but children try to educate so that they listen to the opinion of elders.
      Here the rites of Georgian wedding are not much different from Russian. The groom must come to the bride's house with relatives to ask for her hand. The girl's parents meet matchmakers with a magnificent feast, during which the young man's side praises him. They should list all the positive aspects.

      Everyone is waiting for the appearance of the bride, who must give their consent to marry. And with a positive answer, the feast continues. Often even neighbors are involved in this process.
      Then the holiday is moved to the house of the future husband, where the table is also laid.
      As well as the Georgian wedding, preparation takes place to some days. It's time to get engaged to a young man and a girl.
      Taking with them a lot of gifts (it may even be just flowers, an expensive bottle of cognac and sweets), the groom's parents with him again visit the bride's house. On the table should be national dishes and a lot of wine, which should not end until the matchmakers at a party. Therefore, they are stocked in advance.
      Men and women before the feast are divided, discuss various topics. And now the guy is sitting next to his beloved. Everyone is waiting for the groom's father to stand up and make his toast, in which he will Express the joy of the upcoming kinship with the bride's parents. Only then will be presented with a beautiful ring future wife (sometimes a family heirloom, which passes from generation to generation). The fun doesn't end there. No one should be left out.
      During the talks, the financial and organizational aspects will be touched upon. Discuss the wedding venue. More often, almost everything has to pay for the groom's side.
      When the matchmakers gather, they are given khachapuri and various sweets.
      Bridal clothes
      Buying clothes also occurs according to tradition. So, for the Georgian wedding, the future husband buys beautiful clothes for the girl.
      The outfit should consist of two parts. A shirt with a collar is worn down. He shows modesty and innocence. From above there is a black or light-colored dress, which according to tradition should be richly embroidered, the sleeves have deep cuts. Bride necessarily girdled. Girlfriends braided a braid and put on a headdress with a veil - chikhti-mines or mandilias. The neck can be decorated with a beautiful necklace and pearl thread.

      Bride price
      This before the groom had to buy a bride, giving her parents livestock. Now it can be simple gifts that have prepared matchmakers for future relatives, and the ransom is more entertaining. It all depends on the well-being of the family.
      Since all the girls live in their parents ' house before the wedding, this ceremony takes place there. But in many areas of Georgia before the grooms could come and even live with the bride after the engagement.
