I'm writing this short little bit to explain to people how to grow from Top.gg, a website formerly known as discordbots.org. To get the most out of top.gg, you need to understand its algorithm. But why should you list your server on top.gg/servers? Well, the website receives tremendous traffic. Top.gg drives tens of thousands of server joins and bot installs each day, and the site experienced and estimated 17,400,000 hits during July. Top.gg is a very relevant and free service that can help you attain many members over time if utilize correctly. My biggest servers all have several hundred joins from this website.
What to know
Top.gg does NOT require bumping, and it does not offer premiums, although there are auctions that take place that can grant servers more exposure. What the website does is it lists servers in order by size, based on the server's category and tags. That's just one thing to keep in mind, so if your server is small, you probably won't gain many members initially from this website. On the bright side however, there are a few ways to maximize traffic from this website and I will tell you how.
Invisible Tag System
While it may appear that Top.gg does not have a tags system, the opposite is true. Top.gg uses a hidden tag system that lies within your 140 character short description. Your short description will largely determines the traffic your server will receive because each and every word typed into it is registered by the site as a search tag. For example, if you were to type 'Pokemon' into Top.gg's search bar, the website will list all servers with 'Pokemon' listed in their short description, in order of size. Furthermore, search tags do not have to be exact to take effect. For example, the tag "partnerships" will show results for both "partnership" and "partnerships", instead of just "partnerships".
A clever and well thought out short description that utilizes all of the server's important key words can help significantly with how many people see your server on this website.
Another method that can help you grow faster on Top.gg is have unique, high quality, and maxed out emotes on your server. This is important because all of your emotes will show on your server's profile page, and many people join servers to enjoy the emotes that these servers offer. You can find emotes off a variety of websites, in fact, Top.gg is an excellent resource for finding emotes you can use for your own server (just try to avoid snagging emotes that were designed by servers for their server only). However, my favorite source for emojis would be discordemoji.com. The resource of emotes stored on discordemoji are incredible! You can also try adding emotes that you see other people use on different servers.
