How do I create a YouTube Channel?

I have my first video ready and need to create a Channel. What info do I need to create the channel?

What about search terms, etc?

How many characters or words am I allowed? Are those associated with the channel or the video or both?

Can I change these values later as I tweak it?

I really want to get this uploaded fast.

What kinds of things can I do to get traffic besides the obvious use of social media to spread the video?

Create a new channel
With a Google Account, you can watch, like, and subscribe. Google Accounts don't come with a YouTube channel by default. Without a channel, you have no public presence on YouTube.
To upload, comment, or make playlists, create a public YouTube channel. Currently, this can't be done in the Android or iOS YouTube apps, but you can use the mobile site or a computer.
