A question which I get asked all the time as a Roblox developer is, “AlvinBLOX, can you show us how to get Roblox front page?”. It is a great question and it is one which has many answers. Today though, I’m going to share a few tips with you which can help you get your game on to the front page. I’ve seen these techniques being put to the test and they do work.
Firstly, we start with the whole pandemonium of clickbait. This is the number one, super top thing that you MUST NOT do. It’s everywhere, in YouTube videos, adverts and even in Roblox games. What seems a great way to drive players to your game and get Roblox front page status by using false advertising isn’t actually the greatest way of trying to get your game popular. It will actually end up in you losing players and revenue. Why, you ask? It’s simple. Player finds clickbait game, plays it, immediately leaves because it wasn’t what they expected and clicks the thumbs down button. As more and more people find your game which you’ve advertised / sponsored and become disssapointed, the thumbs down ratings soon overtake the likes. This brings up red flags on Roblox’s end and can end up with your game being put under review, which means you lose revenue from advertising as you aren’t getting any players.
So, the big question still remains and we shall go on to answer it now with one great tip. You want to know how to get on the front page on Roblox if you’re a developer who’s going unknown so you’re about to find out:
THE ULTIMATE PATH TO GET ROBLOX FRONT PAGE – PART ONE
1. Launch onto one category, then use it to propell onto other categories – OK, so you see the Top Rated category on the games page? This is one of the best category to target because you don’t need thousands of visits or concurrent players to get onto it. All you need is a solid and healthy ratio of likes to dislikes on your game. This shows to Roblox that your game is liked by most players and within a few days of having a good ratio, your game will skyrocket up the rankings. A great case study to look at here is Steam Age, a game by Roblox developer Steven1411. I remember when Steven released this game to the public for beta testing. In the first 2 weeks it got about 80 likes and hardly any dislikes. Boom. Top Rated status was awarded and his game started to gain traction from it. Still, one year on, the game is still prospering and has an amazing like to dislike ratio.. Just look at the picture!
This just goes to show how you do not need to be popular already to get featured. But, how to you drive likes? It’s simple! But, I’m not saying this won’t take much effort. Oh, no. It will take a lot of effort, because you will need to find out why your players are disliking / liking. Once you find out what they like, do more of what’s making them like. When they dislike, you need to find out why they are giving you downvotes. You need to make sure that your game does what it says on the tin. It needs to feature everything you show in your titles, descriptions and promotional images. You also don’t want to monetise everything because you want to give your players a chance at trying out your game and if they have to buy items to win, they won’t be happy. Try also making it easy for your players to “win” or make it easy for them to complete a few of the first few levels of your game so that they leave happy, wanting to return for more action. If they lose in your game, don’t make such a big deal either, because this can make them angry and then they’ll just leave.
So go forth,developers of the universe, make your players feel more comfortable and happy in your game! Drive those likes like a boss!
