When Google update their ranking for apps that edited their description \ app name?

Wed Jun 14, 2017 7:57 am

Good morning guys! ;)

I have uploaded a new app to Google Play 3 weeks ago (took several months to make) but i didn't use the right keywords in the app name\ description , So after few days I've changed the app name and description but it seems the old keywords got stick to the app ranking \ similar apps page \ ...etc. and they didn't change since app publish, also when i open the "similar apps" it shows other rubbish apps, and none of these apps pointing to my app in their similar apps page! :\

I have tried changing the app name multiple times and used different keywords, so it will appear in search, but with no luck!

my question is: When do Google update app ranking for apps that edited their description \ app name?

Or is it too late and i got a red flag from google? do i need to re-publish the app with a new logo & package name?

Thanks in advance! :)

Answer: never ;) that's why fake reviews are working, if Google remove reviews, keyword stays forever ;)

Solution: upublish and republish with new keywords and package name

Solution 2: spend some $500-$1000 for CPI from Facebook ;) but only if your app is fresh like 3 weeks

I can advice solution 1, second is not 100% sure. My keywords from removed reviews or changed description stays more than 1 year ;/

Thanks for you reply :)

i already have ~20k installs from facebook & adword campaigns.... un-publishing the app is not a feasible solution for me :\

so my app will not appear in search for ever? :\

if its not solution for you, just push more installs and try reviews with new keywords (buy them somewhere)
