App Store Optimization - Tips to optimize your app store listing

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Thursday 27 May 2021

According to Statista almost 2 million apps are available in Apple App Store and a further 2,1 million apps are offered by Google Play Store, making it very likely that your app is facing a tough competition.
Therefore it’s very important to start off right by optimizing your app from the beginning and spending time defining your ASO.

How to write a compelling App Store listing

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Friday 21 May 2021

We previously wrote articles on ASO ( App Store Optimization) and the mistakes to avoid,  but today we wanted to dig a little deeper into the writing side of an App Store listing. We will focus on the App Store description and how and where to use keywords.

The App description is where you have the opportunity to tell visitors why they have to download your app. It's your chance to connect with them and highlight your app benefit. It must be writing carefully. However, on the App Store, the description is not a ranking factor. So for your ASO, you need to pay close attention to the keywords and where to use them (keyword field, App name, App subtitle)

As a reminder, the ranking factors on the App Store are the app name, the subtitle, the keyword field, and then the ratings, reviews, updates, downloads, and engagement.
