App stopped appearing in searches RRS feed

  • Question

  • I made an RSS reader app recently, and after it was published it was doing quite well (at least in comparison with my other apps), but a couple days ago the daily downloads plummeted, and hit zero the other day. When this happened I wondered why, so I checked the visibility of my app, and found that, although it still appears in new+rising (though pretty deep in the list, it no longer shows up in most of the searches that matter.

    The app name is "QReader," and I used the following keywords: RSS,Google Reader,RSS Reader,news feed,Atom feed.

    The only searches that have my app in the results are searches for its name (who is actually searching that?), and ironically, atom feed, which I haven't implemented yet.

    This seems different from other problem's I've seen, because it used to show up, now it doesn't, but it hasn't been removed.

    Has this happened to anybody? What should I do?
