Keywords not working when search from Windows Phone App Store - my app doesn't show up in results! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Basically on my windows phone device I tested all the keywords I submitted with my app and none of the results contain my app.

    Only two out of 5 keywords I published along with my app work from the windows phone store website.

    The same is true for an older app I submitted last year, none of the keywords work to locate the app.  

    But that's not good enough, because majority of people use their phones to search for apps, not the website.

    Which means my app will never be found by people from their phones, unless they directly search for something really specific like my publisher name.

  • I am experiencing the same issue. The WP app store is really screwed up at the moment.

  • Same Problem here, I have to exactly type in the app Name to find it. None of the Keywords work. But I think to complain here in this forum is completely useless.
