Users can list their Discord server on Top.gg in just four easy steps. To see your server list, you’ll want to navigate your Servers' Page. This page displays the Discord servers you have available to add to Top.gg and your existing servers on the site. You can also navigate to https://top.gg/servers/new to add a server that way!
If you do not see any of your servers listed here, click on the "Refresh Servers" button and then log out of the site and back in. This will force a refresh of your servers and then you should see them available to add!
Under the title “Add your server to Top.gg” you’ll see the servers you have available to add. If you do not see the server you are looking for, try clicking on “Refresh Servers.” Once you have found the server you are looking for, you can begin the server add flow by clicking on “Add to Top.gg” located below the server name. This will bring you to a page that lists the four steps you’ll need to complete before your server is added to the site.
Step 1. Invite our Top.gg Bot to Your Server
The first step requires you to invite the Top.gg bot to your server. The Top.gg bot watches for changes to be made and ensures your Top.gg server page attributes stay updated. This helps to make certain Users looking to join your server are seeing the most updated information such as server name, number of server members, bots used, etc.
To invite the bot to your server, click “Invite Bot” in the lower right corner and follow the authorization prompts.
You'll notice our bot asking for Create Invite and Manage Role permissions - this is for the bot to create an invite that doesn't expire, allowing users to continually join; and also to provide role rewards (should you select to do so) when users vote and support your server. If you do not wish to give the bot these permissions, you can deselect them!
Step 2. Create Your Server Listing
The second step is for filling out your server details that will be displayed on your server page.
- Server Type
Is your server a public one or one that requires applying to? Select the one that fits better for your community. For more information on private communities, please read our article here.
- Server Invite Link
First you need to fill out your server’s invite link, you can do this automatically by clicking the “here” button located in the paragraph under “Server Invite Link” or by creating your own in your Discord server settings and providing it in the appropriate field.
If you choose to have the Top.gg bot create you an invite, it will create one for the first channel that it finds via the Discord API - you cannot choose which channel the bot makes an invite to! If you want to specify which channel, you'll need to make your own permanent invite link.
Next you’ll need to fill out your server’s headline. We recommend using a short and catchy phrase to quickly catch your audience’s attention. This should cover what your server does and what it has to offer. Also note this is used in Top and Trending lists and search results.
- Long Description
This section is where you can share details about your server! Let Users know what makes your server stand out and what makes the community special.
Note that our Long Descriptions support both markdown and HTML syntax - you can make your page stand out!
We recommend selecting up to 12 categories that best represent your community. These are used for users to search our site and find things they are interested in - make sure you select relevant categories and as many as represent your community!
Do not include hashtags (#) in your categories! Simply type the name of the category and hit enter on your keyboard!
You can select up to 12 languages that are spoken in your community. We recommend selecting as many as can apply to your community for more visibility in searches!
- Socials (optional)
Showcase your community's other social media links, such as Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and more!
After you have filled out all of the server information above, you’ll be able to progress to the next step by clicking “Next Step”.
Step 3. Confirm Your Server's Details
Here you’ll see a complete summary of all your server details, along with your server invite link, selected tags, server description, and headline. If you’ve forgotten a detail or want to make a change you can navigate to the previous step by clicking “Go Back”. Please note that you will still be able to edit your server page even after the server is listed on Top.gg. If the details listed look good, you can move to the next and final step by clicking “Add Server”. This will publish your server to the site and create a public server page.
If you click on the Add Server button and nothing seems to happen, or it loads indefinitely, make sure that you are the Owner of the Discord server itself! Only Owners can add discord servers currently to our website.
Step 4. Thank You for Adding Your Server to Top.gg!
On the final step page, you’ll have the option to share your newly added server with your Twitter audience. You’ll also see a list of recommended bots you can invite to your server and any additional servers you have available to add on Top.gg.
Your server page will be available publicly immediately after adding it to Top.gg - however, it can take 1-3 days for your server to appear in search results.
Take Your Server to the Next Level!
After completing Step 4 and visiting your newly created server page, you’ll have the ability to edit your existing server information and to add additional information to your server page by selecting “Edit” under “Moderation controls”. This information includes:
- Background URL (optional)
Please note that only PNG and URL file formats are currently supported.
