Here’s how to find your channel ID.

  • Login to YouTube channel.
  • Click on the profile icon.
  • Click Settings.
  • Click View advanced settings.
  • You’ve got the user ID and you’ve got the channel ID.
  • You want to copy the channel ID. You can also use a custom URL, which in my case is
  • Paste your channel ID into Notepad or some other document (see image below)

Another way to find it is to just go to your YouTube channel. At the top here, I’ve got my whole channel URL.

You’ve just got to add this piece of code to the end of your URL (see image below)

I’m going to add it there. You can also substitute your channel ID with your channel name like this, or place a “c” before your channel name like this.

All three URLs will work to create a subscribe link for your YouTube channel.

You just have to add the code to the end of the link.

Let’s test out the link. I’m just going to highlight the link. I’m going to paste the link in my browser. Hit return.

Here’s a popup link to subscribe to my channel. It says, “Confirm channel subscription. Are you sure you want to subscribe to Drost Video?” Click Subscribe. You can see the red button change to subscribed.

“Hey, Herman, does this subscribe link work on mobile?”

Let’s try it out. Here’s the email that I sent a subscribe link to. Tap the subscribe link. Notice, I didn’t get the popup subscribe box on my iPhone so it doesn’t work on mobile phones. It only works if somebody subscribes from their desktop computer.

If you want to unsubscribe from a channel, I can just click on Subscribed, and it says, “Unsubscribe from Drost Video?” Click Unsubscribe.

Now you can see the red subscribe button appears on the channel. Just keep in mind, you can’t subscribe to your own channel if you want to test out the subscribe link to see if it works.

The best way to test out your subscribe link is to log out your YouTube channel and login from a different channel.

Alternatively, you can use incognito mode or get someone else to test that out. Before someone subscribes to your channel using the subscribe link, they have to be logged into their own channel.

Here’s some of the common places you can add your subscribe link.

  • Add it to the description of every video you upload. You’d be surprised how many people click on the link in the description.
  • Add it to your social media sites.
  • Add it to your website or blog.
