This is great news for developers as users can easily find their apps when searching relating keywords. For example, Tweetbot 4 developer, Paul Haddod, searched “Twitter” on the App Store and was presented with actual relevant results. Previously, if you searched for Twitter, you’d get Instagram popping up in the first couple of ‘relevant’ search results, Instagram does pop up but it does so a little further down the list.
App Store search results are now ranked based on a mix of contextual keywords. This is the first time Apple has ranked apps for keywords not found in the title or ‘keyword’ field of an app.
