Since my Google account was suspended and while I am uploading my old Google Play games to a new account I am trying to focus more on Amazon appstore. So... yesterday I uploaded a new game: Protect the White house from aliens(it has been online for around few hours)

protect1.JPG 


It's a simple arcade where you are defending different famous building(Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal, Great Pyramids etc.) around the world from comets and asteroids. This game is a remake from one of my older games called Earth defense 2 that also wasn't a big success.

http://www.amazon.com/wasted-droid-Protect-White-house-aliens/dp/B00O2H7U32/ref=sr_1_32?s=mobile-apps&ie=UTF8&qid=1412177378&sr=1-32

Since a lot of us have big problems with amazon appstore I will post all data here and maybe we will learn something about ASO on Amazon Appstore.

I used keywords: america, asteroid, black, building, castle, comet, crash, deadly, defend, defense, dream, grid, gunner, gunship, invasion, launcher, market, predator, rocket, security, serve, space, states, tile, tower, universe, usa, virus, warfare, zone

I am using just Chartboost in game(full screen ads). I will also post here earnings, impressions etc every few days and after a while... every few weeks.

Those 26 downloads are probably from Amazon test devices. 


I will be updating keywords every now and then, so if you have any suggestions please type keyword suggestion in post.


If you have amazon account you can also give it a rate and a review. If you have any questions... just ask.

hey Roman, how are things man. Hope you're having a good week there.

Interesting post. You are right, amazon is really tough to get downloads on. I don't know what happened this past year with amazon, our downloads have dropped a lot. It might be that amazon are now selling less devices since the Samsung Galaxy is a phone + a tablet (almost). In 2011 / 2012 I think kindle's sold very well. I also heard that the Amazon Fire phone didn't sell too good. I didn't get a chance to see the 3D perspective screen but it sounded a little gimmicky to me. It might seen cool the first time you see it but later maybe not. That's just an opinion based on the idea though, I've not actually used it yet.

Cool, please post your stats as it goes Roman. Also did you check out Chartboost video ads. I heard they can increase ecpm pretty well.

We'll be doing more review exchanges on amazon soon so I'll follow up with you for sure. Which amazon app store are you connected to? US store?

For the keywords I'd recommend adding in some new popular games which are being searched for at the moment. For example, 'Diamond Digger Saga' 'Angry Birds Stella' etc. I know these aren't similar to your game but I've found this technique does attract some downloads. One way to find new popular searches is to see what has been released on the Apple app store recently. If it ranks very high on there, it's likely that amazon users will be searching for it too eventually. Especially games from bigger publishers since their marketing reach will be on social networks and websites too.

I don't think those 26 will come from amazon test devices. At most I think it would be 10 devices that they test on.

Keep us updated on the keywords too man if thats ok [smile]

Chat soon

Hello Martin!

Yeah... things are getting better. Just need to figure out IOS and Amazon. Those low downloads are killing me. [biggrin]
I think that Google sold just 30.000 kindle phones. I posted a link to article somewhere on forum.

Where do i check on which store am I connected?

old keywords

I replaced few keywords with: 'Diamond Digger Saga' 'Angry Birds Stella'.(Thank you Martin for your suggestion)

new keywords:
america, angry, asteroid, birds, black, building, castle, comet, crash, deadly, defend, defense, diamond, digger, dream, gunship, invasion, launcher, market, rocket, saga, security, serve, space, states, stella, tile, tower, universe, zone


1. Day downloads
protect1.JPG 

On Chartboost there aren't any changes so i assume that 25 downloads where made by Amazon during review. 

Oh.. I almost forgot. I integrated video ads in many games that I am promoting on Chartboost(amazon,ios,google play). ecpm for ios games on video ads is around 6$(6$ per 1000 impressions). It is very easy to integrate it. Just add new prime31 plugin and add games to a new compaign where you replace fullscreen ads with video. 


So... till tomorrow =)

A download or 2 per day... Still didn't make even a cent on Chartboost. That is why I am trying to get rates and reviews for that game. I got 3 reviews till now. If anybody else is interested in this experiment please give that game a rate and review.

After 3 weeks... I founds some things. The only thing that matters are rates and review.

amazon.JPG  chart.JPG 
In that game downloads are still very low but after I opened amazon appstore account and rated all of my games with 1 rate and a review...

As you see downloads are rising. So.. if we want to get more downloads, we should work together and exchange those review cause amazon reviews are really hard to get.
