    Hello,

    So I just emailed YouTube about verifying my channel, and they declined it. Here's what they responded: "The name verification badge is applied to official businesses, brands, celebrities, or public figures based on relevance and authenticity of the identity and various other factors. Your channel unfortunately does not qualify for name verification. "

    I just keep seeing small channels with under 20k subscribers having that verified tick. It drives me crazy. I'm already close to 70,000 subscribers and 20,000,000 total views, but still no sight of the verified badge. Some of my friends got the verified badge at 100k subscribers, but I don't really want to wait that long.

    So does the BHW community have any tips for the verification? Should grow my social media pages that they claim as an other factor, or should I maybe try to get more G+ followers? What does Google exactly mean by "various other factors"?

    I think the reply from youtube specifies why you can't use that channel name.

    I wonder why you didn't accept the cancellation if you don't fulfill with fast delivery
