My condolences stargamesryk. Can you clarify how it was "linked"? Currently I have 3 google accounts (only one for publishing though, but thinking of expanding). So, to enter each account I have to sign out first (otherwise  just it says "add account"), and only when I sign out do I see a list of accounts. Does this mean they are "linked"? OR, will they be linked if I am signed in and I can switch between accounts without signing out/in?

Yes... your accounts are linked. If one one of them gets suspended. Rest of them will be suspended few days after.

If you want to have more accounts that won't be linked you have to change IP address every time you login in another account. You also have to check that you are not loged in any google account, delete history and delete cookies. If you want to be extra careful... don't use chrome. Use firefox...

So it sounds like to safely have several google play accounts you would need to access then from different PCs. Im guessing this is the only fully safe way. JavaExp, if you see this thread, what do you think?

By the way stargamesryk, why was your original account terminated?

@Stargamesryk - Yeah they are very sensitive to keyword spam and using famous game words. So we have to be very careful with this. we use a smaller description these days so we dont run this risk, but it does mean less downloads for us. I always feel like we're on a knife-edge with google :s
Thanks for the advice [smile]

Hey GexMob, thanks for sharing.
How do you find the revenue coming from the alternative app stores? It's a good extra revenue stream for you?
We tried to test out publishing on other app stores before but saw very little revenue coming from it. However I read that using ad networks like airpush.com and startapp.com are much better for 3rd party app stores. Also we would need an in-app purchase solution for 3rd party app stores, I think slideme.org does one which can work on many app stores, also fortumo.com.

What do you guys think of alternative app stores? It'll be great to share.

Chat soon all [smile]

Hi GexMob! Thank you for the list.
Do you have any apps uploaded to all/most of those stores? If so, can you share some numbers/which stores it is worth uploading to? I've uploaded to some of the stores on that list, and the numbers haven't been "significant"
