Market analysis and competitor research
The short-tail words of kids' games are almost the same. Once the root of the core keyword is determined, you need to expand more long-tail words. For example, from Appranking, we gathered the top apps related to the keyword for kids' games, as shown below.
Then we go through Keywords Research in the section of ASO, we can search for "kids game" and see similar keywords in App Store so that we can expand more long-tail words. Also in this part, we can see the Top App that is ranking for this keyword. After determining the keywords list, we start Keyword Install
for this kid's app.
Convince your new users that your app is the best with 5-star ratings & reviews.
App Ratings & Reviews optimization
Kid game reviews can be written by two types of users: children and their parents. We consider the characteristics of each of these groups in our line of work. We try to respond to children in their language so that they understand us. Children, for example, frequently complain that a game is paid for. We explain that development is an expensive process that must be repaid.
Furthermore, children aged 8 and up provide a lot of negative feedback. You can handle this well if you take the right approach. If we help them with our response, their rage will turn to joy, and their rating will rise.
