In SEO studies, Youtube videos are used extensively to get links. Youtube is a platform used by millions of people. By creating a Youtube channel, you can promote your products and services and create a link for your website.
Mostly, people give information about the video in the descriptions of the videos they upload and give links to the main pages or subpages of their websites in the description. If you have created a new youtube channel recently, you will see that the links you added in the description section are not active. This is because your youtube account is not verified. After verifying your Youtube account, you will see that the links in the videos you upload are activated.
To verify your channel, you’ll be asked to enter a phone number. Youtube will send a verification code by text or voice call to that phone number.
Once you’ve verified your account, you can:
- Upload videos longer than 15 minutes
- Add custom thumbnails
- Live stream
- Appeal Content ID claims
Why does YouTube ask for my phone number?
Youtube takes spam and abuse seriously. Using phone numbers to verify identity is one way to protect youtube community and combat abuse.
Youtube use the phone number to send you a verification code. Youtube also make sure the phone number is linked to no more than 2 channels per year.
I haven’t received the verification code
You should get the code immediately. If you haven’t, you can request a new code. Make sure you’re not running into one of these common problems:
Some countries/regions and carriers don’t support text messages from Google: Most mobile carriers support text messages from Google. If your carrier doesn’t support text messages from Google, you can try the voice call option, or use a different phone number.
There are too many accounts with the same phone number: If you get the error message, “This phone number has already created the maximum number of accounts,” you’ll have to use a different number. To help prevent abuse, a phone number can only be associated with 2 accounts per year.
Text message delivery can be delayed: Delays can happen in densely populated areas, or if your carrier’s infrastructure isn’t well maintained. If you’ve waited more than a few minutes and still haven’t received youtube text message, try the voice call option.
