Increase Apps Visibility on Google Play Store
Visibility on Google Play Store
Visibility and discoverability are important for apps to reach their users on Google Play. For the average app, search makes up the majority of installs.As an app developer, when a user searches for something that’s like your app,you want them to find your content. Optimizing this process means understandingwhat type of searches users are doing and making sure that data for your app supports these searches.There are generally two types of searches that users do.The first type is for users who know exactly what they’re looking for.For example, those who will do a search based on the title of your app,And titles are not just about branding.It is important to be as clear as possible,in the title to communicate what the app is about.
Searching on PlayStore
Is your app about internet radio, travel planning,podcasting? Making this clear in the title will capture the attention of interested users, making your apps stand out, in a sea of competitors.The second type of search is done by users who are not sure exactly what they want and search by keywords like the features that are looking for.For example, I like puzzle games. And well, I also like goblins.once you’ve gotten the attention of users and they’ve clicked on your app, it’s all about your store listing.
App Listing Details
Your app’s description should clearly tell users what your app does and why it matters to them. Once that’s done, you can brag about how successful your app is, what awards you’ve won, and so on.
App Images and Videos
But as the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. There will be users out there who judge apps by the quality of their screenshots and videos. As such, a high quality app will strive for high quality screenshots and videos that users can scan through. The more you can communicate what the experience is like, the more likely it is that users will download your app.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to do all the work when it comes to search. Google Play is constantly collecting statistics about installs, uninstalls, install retention, and engagement. Apps that are successful at all these metrics are more likely to be highly ranked in search results. So the most important thing you can do is to create the best experience for your users no matter what your app does.
