    New YouTube tab on Google+ Local page

    Saw something tonight that's probably just a test, but that I hadn't seen before. A "YouTube" tab has replaced the "Videos" tab, at least on this page:

    Name:  google-plus-local-youtube-tab1.jpg
Views: 611
Size:  89.2 KB

    If you click on that tab you'll see a couple of videos and a link to the business's YouTube channel.

    I've poked around but haven't seen this new type of tab anywhere else. Wonder if we'll see more like it.

    Interesting. Makes sense that they would promote their brand there instead of just saying "videos". I can see them tying the dashboard and YouTube more closely together in the future with features like the ability ton upload to YouTube right in the dash.

    Hi Phil,

    I think I've been seeing that for awhile. Isn't that a matter of just linking your YouTube Channel to your G+? Like these docs are about? Channel connected to Google+ page - YouTube Help.

    Or do you think it's something new and different?

    We started seeing this about a month or so on a few of our accounts.

    Re: New YouTube tab on Google+ Local page

    Thanks Dusty,

    You said "We started seeing this..." like it just happened on it's own. But since some/most pages still have the video tab and because of things I've read, I thought the business owner had to take steps to integrate for YouTube to show as a tab. Are you saying on your accounts, it just happened?

    Re: New YouTube tab on Google+ Local page

    Thanks, guys. I hadn't seen it, but not surprised I wasn't the first.

    I just scrapped the part about how it's managed through the new dashboard. It's not. Long story. It's just an upgraded Plus page. So, Linda, the link you provided about the "connected channel" does seem to apply here.

    Re: New YouTube tab on Google+ Local page

    Thanks for confirming Phil. I think it's just that not many in local have done the YouTube integration, so we don't see it very often. But I've seen it a few times.

    But don't ever worry about sharing stuff. I often see things that are new that aren't. Stuff changes so fast and often the changes are so subtle that it's hard to know if new or not unless we compare notes!

    Meant to say - wow that's a gorgeous G+ page you posted above. Just really nicely done!

    Thanks, Linda. Nope, as you know, I'm never shy about mentioning what I perceive as "news"

    Re: New YouTube tab on Google+ Local page

    What i am wondering about is how if we have multi location clients we manage the youtube connections?
    A company will have one YOutube page right but what about if they have 10 locations?
    Even worse i have a international client who has asked us to use the one Youtube /user account for worldwide ...

    Sorry Carl,

    I don't know how it's all going to work with multi-locations.
