How do you embed a YouTube subscribe button to your website?

  3. Select your layout and preference for the button.
  4. Google will automatically generate the code for you.
  5. Copy the entire code.
  6. Paste it on your website’s HTML.
Keep in mind that custom website templates might need more steps. Consult your website developer if that’s the case. This is how the page will look like once you’ve entered the correct channel ID or username.

YouTube’s Terms of Use for Subscribe Button Widget

As a precaution, before adding this button we recommend you read and learn YouTube’s terms of use. We’ve outlined the relevant points below:
  1. The subscribe button must be shown clearly on the user’s web page.
  2. Users are not allowed to promote prizes and rewards for people in exchange for clicking subscribe.
  3. Users are strictly prohibited to use the button to track or save subscriber’s data.
There are many other apps that have made website plugins like this, but from a content marketing perspective, the integration between YouTube and a company’s website is highly valuable to improve visitors’ experience.

  2. From a UX perspective, it saves one click for visitors to subscribe to your channel.
  3. It’s really easy to do, so you might as well do it.
