My game, Rush Point, gets on average 1,000 concurrent players, and when I search up “Rush Point” on the search bar my game is showing behind games that have 0 concurrent players. This is not only happening to me but, other people who are in our discord. They say they cannot find the game using the search.
Just checked it out, I think that it still needs to be longer. But to be fair though, it’s still in beta so a description of this length is decent. Try looking at other famous games, check out their descriptions.
You’ll see a lot of them adding other information to the description like for example: updates, emojis, controls, and credit to developers.
This doesn’t seem to be the issue. Looking up wookey12 on the search brings up a game of mine called “wookeys epic top down shooter” that has no description or current players. Searching rush point should 100% come up with that game as the first one.
I gotta admit, it’s a bit weird that your game doesn’t show before any of these.
One of the issues may be that a lot of games contain “Rush” and “Point”. Nothing you can do about this, as they have more overall visits that you.
Still, it wouldn’t make sense to have a game like “RIOTFALL” before you, when searching for your game.
Your description looks fine, it’s of correct length and describes the game. A games with 10k visits and no concurrent players should not appear before yours.
I’ve actually been noticing this a lot with other games, which makes me think Roblox have changed their search algorithm. My game from 2017 called Oof… used to be second when searching the term “Oof”, and this remained like it until 2021, even though it was getting very few players. However, if I search it now, it doesn’t come up at all, in fact games like “Tower of Hell” come up first?
This makes me think they’ve changed the search system.
The game popped up first only when I put the full name (with the brackets). Of course I don’t know how ROBLOX’s search works (and neither would anyone else except for ROBLOX themself) but perhaps the brackets, “[BETA]”, could be throwing the search algorithm off? Try removing it and see if that helps.
Once you get more place visits it should jump to the top of the search (as long as it has a unique name)
When I first released my game, it was flooded with temple run copies, but once it got 100 visits
I see zero players right now:
Sorry, this experience is private
The search has never worked right for me. It has always given per word matches so unless you search by one word and your game has a made up unique name, you’ll probably have a hard time finding it. It seems that adding more words (as in the whole name of your game) only serves to dilute the results rather than focus them. They need to fix this!
I searched the entire name including the brackets and did not find your game.
