Where in my game in play store?

I have uploaded and published my game succesfully in the play store, the problem is that i cant find it when i go to the search button and type its (Display Name), but if i type its package name (com.xxxxxx.yyy) i can see it with no problem. Why is that? any ideas?

    Never done google store, but maybe its just like the App Store, after approval you need to wait up to 24 hours to see it appear on the App Store.

    It usually takes 3-4 hours to appear for me, but make sure that you have keywords.

    I experience the same thing when I first upload my first game. I contact them and they told me that even by searching the exact name of my game, the search will use the words in the name of my app and will only show a certain amount of apps based on popularity of the searched words. If it does not appear on it it's because it is farther away form the limited amount of apps on the search capabilities.

    A few downloads of your app can make the difference. The advice me to post the direct link to my game in various forums so people just press the link and go directly to my game. I did that and in a matter of hours I was able to see my game at the end of the search. They still climbing the ladder although they still not the first choice when I search for their name.

    So go ahead and promote your game and you should see it soon.

    Good Luck!
