My friend created a Google+ profile for himself and a YouTube channel. I assisted him to verify his webpage on Google Web Master Tools and added Google Analytics to his page. He has 8k followers on his YouTube channel but cannot get a verified check on his page.
I did some research and Google says you need to have a Business profile as well. We created another Google+ page as his business but now we need to create another YouTube channel. This will destroy the follower count.
Is there a way to get verified as a person, not a company?
