    Hi Guys,
    My app jailbreak VPN is in the app store for about 1 and half years now, It has 100k+ download. Some investor wanted to buy it with 250k recently.

    After that, I tried my best to keep my app at top 10 for the keyword "VPN". But I failed. The most of top 10 apps are Chinese app. My App has more server and better UI than Chinese apps. Still, I could not rank it well. How can I rank my App?

    have you done a study about your competitors?
    if you have a good number of downloads, next to look at is reviews, they have a huge impact on ranking,

    Yeah, you could buy some reviews to try and boost it.

    Promote your self like mad in 2.0 websites like facebook

    Add a link back to the program you offer....

    Try and find loads of longtail keywords for the keyword vpn, the rite articles point back to the app.

    Fake comment's i am sure there comments ppl can add to the app in question ...

    All done via downloads , according to the stats i seen , a application in the top 50 get approx $17k a month and top 10 get $50k a month in income...

    Look like downloads way forward so self promoting only way ...

    Have you tried any social media yet?

    Vpn is a good niche

    Yeah he's probably right :p I don't know too much about it. But I heard that the maker of Flappy Bird was buying fake reviews before it became famous. But.. I guess he kind of got exposed for it :p

    It's probably like buying views on a Youtube video. It will get you ranked, but it's possible to be discovered.

    Hi,
    Since there are 1.5 million apps are there, With the help of app store optimization,App Marketing with some paid compaigns will bring you a higher rank.

    You should optimize the following parameters like App Title & Description, App Download, Ranking, Backlinks.

    Focus on Optimizing!

    I have seen app developers using following strategy:

    Buying reviews
    Promoting on social media
    Giving pay per install

    For reviews you can start a campaign at BHW & some amount to those who participate or give them a VPN subs for a month or two.
