YouTube reviews a variety of factors in order to determine eligibility for name verification. If your channel qualifies, you will automatically receive a name verification badge on your Google+ page or profile over time. Name verification for Google+ is available to a wide range of businesses and organizations. To ensure your eligibility for verified checkmark, channels should:
- Be connected with a Google+ page or profile
- Your Google+ page or profile must be authorized by your commercial entity, organization, brand, or product.
- If the channel is connected to a Google+ page, the page must contain a link to your organization’s website. This website must be verified (i.e. have a small checkmark next to the website URL), which the +page owner can do themselves by following these instructions.
- Have a substantial number of subscribers.
