My app doesn't show up when searching for it by name

    Question

  • I published a game a few weeks ago, but whenever I search for it by name, I have to scroll through about a dozen different apps before I find it. Is there any way I can make it more visible when searching? I built it using Unity, if that helps.

  • Hey there!

    Have you looked into App Store Optimization (ASO) techniques? Which ones are you currently using? There is a lot you can do to improve visibility of your applications in stores, and a fair amount of information out there to find tips and tricks that can improve this. 

    Have you read up on the recommended store promotion options?

    I'd recommend looking over some of these resources for general advice on ASO:

    If you go into more details about what you've tried already, we can probably give more specific advice, but I'd start with those four links!
