How To Manage YouTube’s Email Notifications


Hey guys. My name is Tim Schmoyer,
and it’s Thursday, and that means it’s time
for some YouTube Q&A. Just like we do every week
here at Video Creators. Andy Russell wrote in and
asked a great question. And Andy is actually a patron
of this channel, Video Creators, over at
patreon.com/videocreators. People who are
supporting this channel, monthly, get access to
a lot of bonus perks. One of those bonus perks
is getting high priority to getting your questions asked,
whether it’s just right there on the Patreon page, or here on
this channel, as in this case. Andy asked this question
just a few days ago, and we’re going to
answer it here together. Could you do a video about
how to get my channel to stop emailing me every time
someone comments on my video? Yes, Andy, I will show
you not only where comment notifications are, but new
subscriber notifications, message notifications, Google+,
like all the notifications are actually spread out a
couple of different places. So, let me take you
over to my desktop, we can show you where
each of them are. All the email notifications
for your channel are up here. Click on this little gear to
go to your YouTube settings, and then here, you will
find under email, whenever you want to get YouTube
notifications from your email. So here’s a couple of emails,
likes, my subscribers, but the one you’re
talking about, send me emails if someone
subscribes to my channel, leaves a comment, receive
a private message, video upload is complete,
community actions [INAUDIBLE]. So these are the ones
that are available, here. However, to get to the one
that you’re talking about, for YouTube comments, you
click on this link right here. And it’s going to take you to
your Google+ page settings. And just scroll
down a little bit. Here is receive notifications,
by email or phone. Posts is what you’re looking
for, and this one right here. Whenever someone
shares a comment on your content across
the web, for example, your YouTube videos or blog. Uncheck this box. You don’t want that checked. That’s what will disable you
getting emails for comments, and these apply to
other things, too. So, if it mention you
in a post on Google+, shared post to you directly,
subscribed to your circle, comments on a post that
you created in Google+, or comments on a post
after you comment on it. You can easily just
turn these on and off. And if you want text
message notifications, you can enable that on your
phone, and have those here. And then, of course, these
are where the rest of them are for Google+. But the one you’re talking about
for comments, it’s right here. Just uncheck that,
and you’ll stop getting email
notifications when someone comments on your videos. I hope that was helpful
for some of you. Maybe you were watching this,
and you’re thinking, man, I would just love to have
the problem of too many email notifications for new
comments, and new subscribers, and new interactions,
and Google+, and YouTube, and all this stuff. Well, there is actually
a tool that you can use to help build the
exposure for your channel over at famebit.com. They are our sponsor here
this month at Video Creators. And they have a whole
collaboration section on their site, where you can
find other YouTube creators who are looking for other creators
to partner with, and link arms with, and cross promote,
and collaborate with. There’s a link that will take
you directly to the site, and the description
of this video. So go down there and click
that, and go check it out. You can also land
brand deals there. If you want to
find companies that are looking for YouTubers who
will talk about their products, and their services
in their video. And they pay you very
quickly, and very well, and there’s a lot of
other really cool things over at FameBit for you
as a YouTube creator. So make sure you
check that link out in the description
of this video. Go click it, check them out,
and while you are doing that, I’d love to hear from you
in the comments below, here, on this video. How do you manage the comments
on your YouTube channel? Do you use the email system? Do you use the
Google+ notifications? Do you go to
youtube.com/comments and go through all them there? Or do you simply, like
I tend to do, just go through the comments of the most
recent videos on your channel, and just keep up with those. You’re looking for
ideas, and you’re looking to learn
more about this, definitely check out what
people are saying down there. I know you’ll learn a lot from
a lot of really smart people who are hanging out
here at Video Creators. So check that out, and if
this is your first time here, I’d love to have you subscribed. Every Thursday we do some
YouTube Q&A, just like this. Every Tuesday, we take a look at
some of the updates and changes happening on YouTube and
talk about the implications that it has for us
as creators, as we’re developing our audiences, here. On Wednesdays, we do tips,
advice, suggestions, ideas, things like that. And I do all of this
because I really believe that a lot of
you guys have messages that need to spread that
the world needs to hear, and I will do
everything that I can to help you guys
grow your channels, and grow your YouTube audiences. So the people who need to
hear what you have to say, can find you, and be
changed, hopefully, by what you’re sharing
here on YouTube. So, thank you for letting
me be a part of that. Subscribe, and I will see
you guys again next week. Bye.
