Reviews

Google has updated its subscribe button to redirect to the YouTube channel

The subscribe button always redirects the visitor from my blog to my YouTube channel.

This happens with every other similar plugin I tried (to embed a YouTube subscribe button).

I get the same sub-optimal behaviour by manually copying the embed code generated at Google Developers (https://developers.google.com/youtube/youtube_subscribe_button) into a web page or text widget on my blog site.

I finally discovered the reason:

This update contains the following changes:

The Subscribe Button has been updated so that users do not subscribe to or unsubscribe from a channel just by clicking on a button. Now, when a user clicks on a button, the channel page associated with that button opens in a new window.”
