228 App Store Keywords from App Store Search Suggest

I was writing an article on App Store SEO and decided to mine the App Store search suggest to see if it could tell me anything about how users navigated the app store through search. The results are below. To discover this list I put the letters of the alphabet into the search engine to find popular queries around that letter. The result was a list of 260 keywords, 228 of which were unique. 

A few observations:

  • The list is made up mostly of popular apps and developers of the apps, most of which are listed according to the application name or developer name, and not according to the query used to find them.
  • Seems to be fresh content, as some of the apps are brand new
  • Free is the most frequently used keyword, followed by lite
  • In some cases (e.g. bible, drinking games (free), sudoku (free), dog whistler) no specific app is mentioned.

This list will likely change as the most popular app list changes, but marketers looking to understand what users are looking for in the App Store can use search suggest to help them get there.
