    So I am just starting my App Marketing learning. Trying to gain knowledge about all white hat and black hat methods. Recently during my analysis, I came across apps with a weird code placed strategically in the app description. To give you guys example of what i am talking about, I am attaching the screenshots from both ios and android store.

    Could anybody explain what could be the significance of these weird codes, are they part of some weird ASO hack or what?

    The 2nd app is ranked 3rd for keyword 'Battery booster' even though its bad and I doubt It will have user retention.

    That's strange, how am I ever supposed to learn what's happening under the sheets then?

    I can definitely verify that that number is indeed a PMRN. You need to learn your acronyms, OP.

    lol same question, I am a total noob, what is 'Papal Monke number', if somehow it is something nobody talks about openly, can they message me some information about it, so that I can read and figure out what it is? Thanks for the respone though.

    I'm not an expert on PayPal and neither is Neon, that's why we're tagging @Ste Fishkin . He's the one who knows his stuff, and he'll be here in a minute to make everything clear.

    Your Papal Monkeys must be around zero if you're drawing such conclusions.
