How often do you update rankings?

My app is not on the front page of the search results. Do you still track it?

What is the keyword traffic score?

The Traffic Score is an estimate of potential traffic, and it ranges from 0 - 10, with only a few very popular keywords like "Facebook" having a score of over 8. A healthy traffic score is anywhere above 4 for single words. We pull data from a number of sources, like autosuggestions when typing in the store, frequency of word usage in common crawl data, length of terms, difficulty of typing on the iPhone keyboard, traffic estimates from the web, etc. We've refined it many times, so it's a very good estimate. The one thing it's slow at is capturing and predicting events -- for example traffic for Xmas related searches is higher during the holidays, but we don't predict it as fast. Similarly, if a new popular app comes out, it usually takes a bit of time to figure out that the app's name is a popular search term.

How do Email Alerts work?

We can notify you whenever a new competitor enters your targetted keywords, or if your app jumps up or down in rankings. You can change your notification settings in the Settings panel.

What does the Optimize Keywords module do?

You're limited to only 100 characters worth of keywords in the App Store, so it is really important to make sure that every one of your keywords counts. We look over your keywords and make sure that there aren't any inconsistencies, such as repeated keywords, inefficient keywords or misspelled keywords that the App Store autocorrects.

Can I view my competitor's keywords?

Yes! Just visit the front page and enter an app name. Getting access to this data is going to give you the opportunity to target keyword searches more effectively.

What different levels of plans are there?

We've got a variety of plans, including a free-to use plan that is much better than some of the paid plans of our competition. Please take a look at the Plans page to view all the plans.
