Not searchable RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a wp7 app title SimpleSudoku that is not searchable using the search term Sudoku. If you search for SimpleSudoku, it will find it, but then the user has to know the name of the app. If they want a sudoku game, they are just going to search for Sudoku, but they wont find my app. Can someone investigate why my app is not showing up in search results for "Sudoku" when it is part of the games title and is also in the games description?

  • There's a limit on the amount of results returned in the Store for a keyword search. Therefore, if you publish an app with a very commonly used keyword (like Sudoku) it's possible that your app won't appear in the results for the given keyword. You should note that apps are ranked in order of recent popularity.
