Community server browser is always empty
It's been like this for almost a year now. Maybe 3 or 4 community servers pop up at a time max. Usually the same ones.

Searched for a fix on Google but did not see any threads pertaining to this.

Does anyone know what the deal is?

Try lowering your in-game server browser: max pings / minute setting to something lower than 5000. It is in Steam Settings and on the In-Game tab and the dropdown is at the bottom. I used to have that issue with the server browser when I had a slow dsl connection.

I live in PA and my Server List is always full.

This used to happen to me on CS 1.6. You have an outdated Server List file. Try verifying the Game Cache a couple times to try to get it to download a new file.

Or if you could find the Server List file, then you could probably delete it, and verify game cache again.

I would go into
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo
And then look through all the folders for anything that says "server" and delete it.
And then verify game cache

Verifed cache and lowered the Max Ping/Minute setting to 1500 and did not see any improvements.

Went into my CSGO folder and deleted everything that had the word "server" in it and now I'm getting more results........... only now it's showing MORE empty servers and when I click "Hide Empty Servers" I get the same ~4 results as before. Haha weird

But hey, it's an improvement, right?

That's strange......
Maybe your ISP is blocking your internet connection.
Try downloading "Hotspot Shield", and then see if you get more servers with people playing in it

Or maybe you have CS:GO blocked on your Windows Firewall

**Fixed mine***
Someone said to go to settings in steam, then the in game tab increase max ping to 5000, so i tabbed back in game, no change, then i thought, this is stupid, so i went and lowered it back to 3000 anc when i tabbed back in, it works!, and btw, tick the box has people playing (in cs go community server browser) then untick it, thats all i have done and now its working :)
