    In theory does anybody know if it is sufficient to only download an app to effect rankings? Is it really that simple?


    Does Apple now require the app to be installed, launched and something like a UDID checked. This would make sense if Apple was serious about dealing with artificial bot rankings?

    The reason I ask is that it seems that "silly" apps are still ranking. It is interesting how that happens and if the larger companies use some sort of sophisticated bot "marketing" farm?

    Thanks for any insight you can provide.
