How Windows Store search engine works?

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am very confused. I can't understand how Windows Store search engine works?

    I have an app Words Gen and when I entered the exact name I can't be found it,

    instead other apps with small relation appear.

    To find it I go Store -- > Account --> MyApps --> Apps Installed on .....

    and finely I founded it in Store.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Please help me

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    There could be many reasons involved in this.

    Few reasons-

    1) Please check for which all countries you have submitted and in which country store you are searching in. Sometimes you may be searching in different country store.

    2) Appropriate keywords to your app

    Also  contact developer support for any assistance

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the prompt answer.

    I can't find a logical explanation to the fact I introduced the exact name Words Gen and tens of apps

    with any relation appear. Please try it yourself.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    May I know for which countries it is available and when you have submitted?

    1) Sometimes, you may be searching in different stores but you might have missed that particular country while submitting. So, make sure you are searching the app in same country store where it is available

    2) Sometimes, you might have missed appropriate key words and description while submitting

    3) It may take time, to pick up from search If it is just publishe

    4) Try your app name in "" for search.  Just to check if it is picking up at lease

  • Hi,

    I am really sorry, there was big misunderstanding. I thought its kind of developer related(dev center) question as this forums is dedicated to development related issues.

    You would probably ask this question in -
