Google Now Indexing The Apple Itunes App Store

Google Now Indexing iTunes App Store

I just saw this tweet from Ed (via Jason Van Preen).

Apple indexing Itune App StoreAnd yes it’s true… It appears that Google is now indexing the Apple Itunes App Store.

Now This Is BIG News….

See, one of the ‘keys’ that a lot iPhone Application developers have missed when trying to sell/market/distribute their applications is that have relied on the App Store itself to generate the sales…

They are coders, not marketers – and this is where you and I have the upper hand.

Making the type of money you can ($37,000USD in one day) with an iPhone App is not another Kevin Costner ‘baseball’ movie…

If You Built It… They Will Not Come.

Just like any other business project, it’s not about the product….

It’s the marketing that typically makes the difference between success and failure.

Market Research and Traffic are the first two steps for any business project for a reason.

And with Google now indexing the App Store…  here comes the traffic.

What will be interesting to see, is ‘how much’ traffic people start to get, what the conversion rates will be, and ‘how to’ influence your Apps position in the SERPs.

Side Note: The name you give your app and the keywords you use in your Apps description have never been so important:

p.s. I’ll have an update on the 30DC Book, along with a more detailed report (and maybe some interviews) on iPhone App marketing up here in the coming weeks.
