How do I Make My Minecraft Server Popular


Get Embed Codes

Level 7 : Apprentice Crafter
Hi guys.
I've had one question held in for a long time now about Minecraft servers.

How do I make mine popular????

- I look at all these servers, seeing that they're so simple. But yet, they have so many people on them, its amazing.
- I look at mine- 5 people online. Including me. 128 slots, 5 online.
- I've tried advertising at the following sites:

+ www.planetminecraft.com
+ www.youtube.com
+ www.minecraftservers.net

And many, many more.
But yet, i still seem to have a very low of about three on my server per day.

What am I doing wrong?
What i offer:
PVP, Classes, BattleGrounds, pretty good builds, Factions, Raiding, Griefing, Stealing, etc.

My servers IP is zaxilous.no-ip.org:25570

Can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong??
And how I can make my server more popular maybe??

Advertising obviously helps, but it never stays.

Help, please.

There is no real answer to "How do I make my Minecraft Server popular?!". It's all gone now. Take a break. I have my own Server (The IP is Gamer-Realms(dot)[size=10pt]com Join if you like), and there's at least 9-15 people on at all times on weekends. But school days, 2-6. That's the issue. 1. People are too busy to play on Minecraft servers 24/7. 2. They're just stuck-up brats playing their HiveMC not giving small servers chances. Mostly number 2.[/size]
Try purchasing a advertisement on reddit.

I have the exact same problem. I have a custom domain, custom plugins, custom everything. I created my server from scratch. I spent so very long on it. Each month we struggle to buy the server. We only have about 4 players on during the day...Sometimes 0 people are on. I don't know what to do.
We have the nicest and most reliable staff ever...

Be fair, have good moderators And staff and be sure they dont abuse it, Dont ban peoble becuse they dont think the same as you,
dont allow peoble to donate their way to crazy perks like flying or bedrock... Donating should be for loving the server, not to get perks...
And DONT advertise on other servers! If you join and say "Join my server Ip:" Then you get a instant ban...
[size=10pt]And probertly they all say "Join my server derp.idiot.goaway.com" or some kids might go there and spam you chat...[/size]

[size=10pt]And most of all, make a good loking site (maybe in here) And have a good pickture showing the spawn, and KEEP IT UPDATED! Thats is a MUST![/size]

[size=10pt]I hope you enjoy these tips, and hope you get succes :)[/size]

Well, if you want to have a answer from a girl, if i were you i would make a good spawn and a amazing trailer for your server. Make sure you doing your server better and might giving people surprises and things like that. And as i said make a good spawn and a trailer.
