Thanks for contacting Google Play Developer Support.

I understand it can be frustrating to keep searching for your app on Google Play. Please note, we show a limited number of search results in Google Play to ensure the best user experience. If your app’s search rank for a specific term is too low, your app will not display in results. Keep in mind, however, that your app is always available by direct link (, which you can share with users as you actively market your app. Many factors go into the Google Play search results, and while you can’t control all of them, you can try to find the app by searching pname:com.xxxx at This is a tip that helps you verify if your app is correctly included in the search index. As long as you can find the app with the prefix of pname, you can be assured that the app is indexed, and the next thing you need to do is to improve your app’s visibility. Here are some tips that can help your app’s visibility on Google Play:    Build a lasting and meaningful experience for your users
