Recently my team and I spent around a month creating a sequel to the “Don’t Press The Button” games. We worked on Don’t Press The Button 5, we spent such a long time on making the UI, Building and Scripting better than any other Don’t Press The Button Game. We did a beta launch and got extremely good results, everyone loved it, playtime was around 10 minutes, loads of likes. I then decided to sponsor a full 60k and it did decent, similar results just a lot lower of a playtime. I was hoping after the 60k sponsor that the game would be boosted near the top few rows when you type in “Don’t Press The Button” but no… I’m super confused on how my game with good ratings, 86k visits, and nearly 1k favorites doesn’t get anywhere near the top, I’ve scrolled down for like 30 minutes and still couldn’t find it.
My Game has better ratings, more visits than many of these games, and I’m just confused on how it isn’t up there?
Perhalfs it didn’t update yet?
I thought that at first too but it’s been a week, usually doesn’t take that long right?
Also, I don’t think this is the right place to post about these things. But it might just be me.
I wasn’t sure where else to post it? It’s under Help and Feedback, where else would I post it?
just changed it to Game Design Support!
I think It might be game design support, but don’t take my word from it. I’m not long enough on this place to know that.
Hm, the number of times “don’t press the button” is in the description affects how far up the page a game would be, so that might be one of the things affecting the search result.
That isn’t a bad idea, I just said it in a few times in the description! Thanks, I am open for any more suggestions though !
Maybe its the concurrent players you have, that might play a big role in sorting games in searches? I’m not sure though.
I’m not sure, I was hoping on getting a higher concurrent player count with the keyword search
It all depends on your keywords and meta data, we dont know what roblox’s search algorithm is so noone can truly know.
Although that is true, we could still at least try to figure it out.
Update: The game eventually did get on the top row, then slowly as it gained more players it got closer and closer to the top-left spot. Now I am the 4th one in the top row! I learned that the best way to have your game up to the top of the keyword search is mainly based on one thing, which is the average player count of your game!
That’s good, I’m gonna check out the game, as soon as I have time!
Btw, I am a HUGE fan of both you, and your brother!!!
