Other users have reported this before, but in their case, it was right after the game was created.

This is interesting considering your game isn’t very new and came out several months ago.


Something wrong is indeed happening. Also, why are popular games suffering from this issue so much? They just randomly disappear from existence…

Our new game Lost Friends was fine when it was released. Fairly unique name and in the top 3 returned results when searched for. Now, searching for “Lost Friends” we are down at approx. ~1000 position and therefore undiscoverable. Roblox have made changes to the search results that are poisoning the returns. Searching for “Lost Friends” returns thousands fo “Rainbow Friends” results, despite not matching the full search string.
Are they ever going to fix search?


I have checked the search and starting today this bug should be fixed now :+1:
