How are Apps Ranked?Title: - This is the "most" crucial part in getting your app ranked! Well yeah make sure you're targeting the right keywords, and your title is "brandable". Good apps entirely depend on how much people can remember the names.
Keywords: - to "target" the right keywords. You need to know which keywords to target, right? So well yeah before finalizing your app name, make sure you go through a decent keyword research. Cause trust me, the ranking? It's destined even before the app is launched.
Cause if you're trying to rank for "Best Soccer Android Games" and you haven't done your keyword research and instead named it something like "soccer android". Trust me; your app is over.
No. of Downloads: - It matters, and LOT! Well yeah, if you launch two applications, 100% similar. And one gets 100 downloads and the second 10. The first will be 100% ranked above the first because Search Engines think that the application is trusted and liked by people so it must be doing what it claims to be doing.
And thus, it boosts ranking because if a request says "Rank Booster" and it's encouraging some ranks and people are downloading it, well then that's what search engines want anyway, User Satisfaction. So yeah make sure your application gets a good decent number of downloads.
Ratings: - They matter both "algorithm" wise, and human wise! What I mean is, when a person arrives on your app page, and he sees someone say "this app is shit" well that guy directly closes the page, right?
Meaning you just lost a "download," meaning you just lost one of your ranking factors. While on the other hand, if you get a 5-star rating and review, then you'll get more downloads, meaning more rankings.
That's how it affects the "humans". But well search engine robots? They are not humans, right? So how do they measure ratings? Well, they're algorithms, rankings and ratings, are algorithms too. So search engines just take 5-star ratings as "real" factors, and 1-star ratings as bad factors.
So you need "scores" but POSITIVE ones! I mean if you get 1000 ratings, and they're 1 star, your app is screwed. While you get just 50 maybe, but they're five stars? You just got boosted, and I can promise that.
But How?Yeah, a legit question! I mean HOW? How will you get more downloads, get more ratings and reviews, and make sure they're all positive? Well not exactly the walk in the park, right? Yeah, I understand. That's where this article on app store optimization tips comes in.
