Discord is Finally Building A Public Servers Library

Discord News Oct 1, 2022

Public communities on Discord are getting revolutionized. Discord is building their very own public server-library that we predict is going to be indexable by search engines. This means that servers on Discord will finally be a lot more accessible to non-Discord users, servers can get their very own website page built by Discord, and Discord servers may not be locked behind an invite link anymore.

Discord Servers - Home

Discord has silently released a new page in their website. This is one of the very first pages in the website to be featured with community-made content. In this case, Public community servers made by the community.

Discord Servers - Home
5322 search results found in Home. Discover Discord servers and communities. Join servers that share your interests - from gaming, to music, to learning, there’s a place for you.

This server library is similar to Top.GG or Disboard you might be familiar with. Or the native Server Discovery feature you must be familiar with – you know, the compass button in the app.

Server Discovery vs Server Web Page

Server Discovery lets users find your Discord server in the Discovery tab. Requirements to enable Server Discovery are:

  • Enabling safety requirements for a safe environment.
  • Server must have at least 1,000 members to qualify.
  • Servers need to be at least 8 weeks old to be in Discovery.
  • Servers must meet certain activity requirements to be in Discovery.
  • Your server name, description, and channel name looks clean!
  • Enable the 2FA Requirement For Moderation Setting

Discovery Tab in Discord Windows App

On the other hand, Discord is slowly rolling out a new feature called Server Web Page. With this BETA feature your server will be publicly viewable in Discord's website. Each server with Discovery feature enabled will eventually get this feature for their server.

We don't know exactly when it will be fully rolled out but it is certain that it has started rolling out for a bunch of servers and you never know when you might get it. We have previously written about this feature before. It has come a long way but if you want to read about early stages of this feature, here you go.

This new Discord feature let’s you create a website in 5 minutes
What’s something your community server lacks? That’s right, a public website.

Imparable bugs in Discord Servers Home

The website is very early in development. We're sure of it because even the basic embedding of the page is missing a few details.

Not all added servers are available in the page yet. It does show that there are 5321 (at the time of writing this article) servers, but the last pages are empty and/or refuses to load.

Search Engine Indexability

Extremely popular Discord invite links are indexable and can be found with a quick Google search. However, a better way of going about this would be to land the users on a page to give a few information about the community before forcing them to directly join the community in the Discord app.

Hence, Discord is helping you build this landing page with Server Web Pages.

Do you wish the URL was editable?

We do! The server name + the ID doesn't exactly look pretty in the search results. Let's have a chat, join in.
