Let Us Understand About App Store Optimization’s Working-

Before moving further on the way to maximize, mobile app downloads & increase user acquisition, let us grasp some knowledge that how the app store works while you publish the app.

Have you heard about SEO- Search Engine Optimization? We believe yes!

However, have you heard about ASO- App Store Optimization?

Unlike SEO, in which you optimize your web content, make your keywords on rank, and drive more traffic on the page, in-app store optimization, you can tune your “App” & can place your app in the top ranking.

These two-SEO & ASO are very similar about your application’s success, but ASO has an even more significant impact on its listing than SEO does for Google search results.

ASO is specifically what increases the visibility of your app in the marketplace. The higher its rank, the more users will find your app when they search.

Some factors that affect your ASO:

Positive reviews:

The more positive report on the app, get the more downloads on the App.

App downloads:

The more downloads on your app, the more downloads you will get.

Keyword significance:

Apps with the critical keywords in the title of the app or the description of the app can drive the app in ranking.


Including more backlinks to many relevant pages can help in achieving a higher ranking.

Besides this, there are also some brawny tricks to maximize your app’s downloads & increase user acquisition.

Ways To Get More Downloads On App:

It does not mean that it gets too much flashy.

Appropriate App’s Description:

A good title defines your product among users. It makes the difference between referring to the name of your app else saying “that app in my phone.”

So if you want your app catches many heads down towards it, then make the title appropriate or unique.

As your app title should be sweet and simple, your description, on the other hand, is where you need to be strategic about ASO. It works similarly to the Meta description tag for a website but is not searchable on the app store.

So, while you don’t need to pack it with keywords, you do need to be strategic with it. By listing relevant information, benefits and features, social proof, and a call-to-action, you can significantly affect your ASO.

Social Media Outreach:

Before targeting the social media platform on which you are going to promote your app, first decide from where to start.

This means that the social media platform, which you are going to utilize, must match the personality of your app.

The language, which you are going to use, describes the app’s quality too.  Let suppose, if your app belongs to a crisp & trendy category then App should have that type of language rather than using business language in it.

Well, if your app is all about professionalism, then it should be presented in professional language that might suits the target audience as well.

There are various social media platforms, from where your app would get more attention:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram

  • YouTube
