Today we’re going to show you how to add and change your YouTube channel description, also known as the About page.


The YouTube channel description shows up in several places, including YouTube search, and helps viewers know what your channel is about.


  1. The YouTube channel description and the About page that’s visible from the channel page are the same thing.
  2. Some YouTube experts believe the About page is the most under-used feature for YouTube optimization.


  1. Go to your YouTube channel home page (logged in).
  2. Click on About page tab.
  3. Click “Customize Channel.”
  4. Roll over description to see pencil icon. Click it.
  5. Describe your channel and why people should subscribe. Click Done.


  1. Links are not clickable on the channel description/About page.
  2. You can add your business email on this page (users see it after verifying their human status).
  3. This is where you add banner links to your website and social media.


Now you know how to add a YouTube channel description, also known as the About page.
