    Do you have your tags/keywords set up? Are there a lot of other apps with the same name?

    i didn't saw any tags/keywords option at the developer console but the name is unique :/

    I haven't published in a while, I couldn't find tags so I think they must be limited to Apple's store. Even when I searched for the name that published it, it doesn't show up. I don't know what the problem could be, maybe someone who has published recently could help you out.

    Google Play doesnt use tags/keywords like App Store or Amazon. Instead it relies on keywords and ASO. The name, the description are your key words.

    However, do NOT spam keywords and/or if you create a flappy bird game (for example), and you use the word flappy bird or mention it several times in your description, google will ban the app and when they do, its all but impossible to get a response from a machine.

    My suggestion is - think about the type of game yours is smiliar to search google and type in that game name, and see what results come up. Also check the bottom of the page

    You can also use App Annie to check ASO/keywords to create description. But frankly, your screenshots don't explain what your game does.

    Did you select 'all countries' when you added it for sale?

    Yes. Is it a problem

    You only launched it today. Sometimes it can take up to 24 hours to appear. My apps can appear on google play online but not on the mobile app. And, if I search, I can't find it either for a couple of days.

    I launched it 2 days ago. Because of this i thought there will be a problem. I just update today maybe problem at there ?

  • jigglybeanjigglybean Posts: 1,584Member

    Yes. When you update, you have to wait again. See what happens tomorrow.
