When a YouTube search contains channel results, they are parsed and exist within the channel_results array in the JSON output.

Channel results overview

When SerpApi encounters channel results, we add them to our JSON output as the array channel_results. For each channel result, we are able to extract its position_on_page, title, link, verified (returnes true if channel is verified), video_count, description, thumbnail and more.
