App Store SEO tutorial App Store SEO tutorial Presentation Transcript

  • App Store SEOhow to make organic trafficsell your iPhone apps m p ho or a . C e ! f .k t e d a da v is 12 up re 0 ne 2 ngi ne h e J u rcby AppCod.es 4 th se asept. 2012 2
  • AppCod.esTwo ways to promote your appPR + Marketing App Store SEO- expensive + easier to do- very time consuming + immediate results+ the only way to get to Top#25 - won’t bring you to even the Top#1000, but + can bring in a decent income + good for indie devs & niche apps
  • AppCod.esExample - what we did - better reviews - iPad version (+50%) - better name, keywords
  • AppCod.esiTunesConnect - what matters for SEO app name keywords (max 100 chars)
  • AppCod.esKeyword appearance search position vs. Search results are ordered more or less by the popularity. app description doesn’t matter update dates seem to not matter reviews seem to not matter in-app purchase names matter very little
  • AppCod.esTrick #1 - plural forms After the recent update Apple handles plural forms very well. So, if you’re short on characters use singular forms, you’ll get just a slight disadvantage
  • AppCod.es Trick #2 - articles & prepositions These words are ignored in search, no need to put them into the keywords: “a”, “the”, “and” Trick #3 - publisher name You can mix publisher name and a title. You cannot mix publisher name and the keywords E.g. Publisher name: “Motivapps” search for: will work App name: “Love letters” “Motivapps Love Letters” Keywords: “Romantic Poems” “Motivapps Romantic Poems” won’t worki.e. it makes sense to add your publisher name to your keywords if you’ve got a strong brand.
  • AppCod.esBy the way. What’s important for sales1. nice icon2. descriptive name Motivapps Love Letter Writing...3. good reviews 29 Ratingsif your app is good on these threethings then people will check outother details, like description,screenshots etc.
