How To Find Your YouTube Channel Name

This post contains affiliate links.

Sometimes you just don’t remember your YouTube Channel Profile name or exactly the URL shortname so you can leave it in a profile somewhere.  There are several ways to find your YouTube profile URL and name but we will cover just a few of them.

YouTube DashBoard Link

If you go to YouTube.com/dashboard you will see your View Channel link in the center, simply hover over and look at the URL or click it and you can see your YouTube user URL.

This is the simplest and fastest way in my opinion to find your YouTube Channel Name, but another method would be to go to any of your videos, then click on the channel under the video.

But you can see if you run channels tied to a Google Plus Business Page, this can lead to a pretty ugly looking channel link https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnnoVEXsgW98gt0hxszklZQ but this technically is the same channel as https://www.youtube.com/dragonblogger just what it looks like behind the scenes without the “alias”.
