    Same problem here, no result by name, long name, developer name, pakage name, just link working, App is on @6 top trending, 90 on top free still no result by keywords, so now only way to continue our App is by running adwords :(
    By the way it's ok to run Adwords campaign from different account for same App? ( Just to get benefits of 1st time promotion)

    Same here, published app few days back, cannot find even using package name. Funniest thing that we really have experience in apps. Main app have 1+ million downloads. We had same problem few months back with other app. So what we done, changed description and name few times, after this app started to rank.

    I've updated my apps many times and still didn't get indexed.
    I've also tried to republish an old app that was unpublished since 15months and it didn't get indexed (after 7 days).
    This is illegal from Google, they can't have a marketplace where their apps are indexed and other developper apps not indexed.

    Disney+ was released the 11 september (so it's not affected by the recent change). Then the reason you can't see it, is because it's country restricted.
    The subcription is only available in the US for now.
    Check play.googleDOTcom/store/apps/new and select the apps that have been released since October (you can verifiy that on appbrain/appannie...) and you will notice that most of them are not indexed.

    "Every month, more than 2 billion users from over 190 countries visit the Google Play Store to browse and discover new apps and games.

    Lol how this can work, if apps is not indexing??? As I said I work with google play apps from 2015 years. I know all the system and aso. I manage to get 1,5 million downloads, other apps have 200k-500k downloads. I know my system, all the time I choose good keywords as I work in same niche and I know them good. After one week I start to get all details which keywords rank best, sometimes other keywords start to rank better than my planet. After this I need to redo again aso to boost best ranked keywords.

    12 days passed. My app won't rank with any keyword. I event cannot find it using package name... All aso tools show blank for any ranking... I have few 5 star reviews from my friends as I'm doing like this all the time, but google play indexed only one. I`m boosting my installs using my old well ranked apps.

    First month is crucial for new apps, as you can get inside top new trends, later is only organic by keywords. So as they are greedy best option is to order ads pay loads of money to adsense and get installs... And there is 0 competition, you can make super useful app, give everything free, without ads for first half years, you will not gonna rank, as they just won`t index it.
