Well this is not really an algorithm change they are just manually removing old apps. And yea I mostly didnt even use more than 50 characters for a name so...you need to target long-tail keywords, cramming single keywords gets you nothing.

Hi!

I think there's a change in the algorithm, because now apparently you are ranking for keywords you don't have on your title and keywords set, and that are related to similar apps on the same category as yours.. this was not happening before... but I guess is too early to know exaclty how to control this related keyword ranking.

Interesting, I suspected this, couple of weeks ago I got around 50,000 downloads in 2 days organic from the App Store on one of my games and it all pointed to this theory.

Yes, quite interesting! Let's see how it goes and maybe we can make a study case or something about the ranking of our apps before and with the new change

I'm looking forward to this too. I've noticed since the update took affect that recently updated apps have risen to the top of ranks. That is just my perception maybe they changed their keywords or something I'm not sure.

Hi guys! Which kind of apps are (the ones that went down in ranking?)
Made ASO before I guess, right? Please share your apps so we can all try to understand what's happening and find a way to solve it! We can learn a lot if we share our findings.

I read an interesting article that states apple punishes apps that don't update to fit their new criteria for the app title by down ranking them. Interesting article
