The most important KPIs to be analyzed is the click through rate and the conversion rate.

Downloads

Everything that collaborates with ASO process is done just for one reason: downloads. The way that you analyze the numbers of downloads that the app gets in a determined time, signals app performance.

With this, it will be simple to compare the numbers. So, the best KPI to measure is to see how many downloads were acquired in days, weeks and months, and see if it increases, by analysing the conversion rate. At least, you can compare it with the views of app’s page.

Retention and engagement

Downloads are not the only reason to invest in ASO. More than users downloading your app, it’s important that they keep using the service.

But, how to know if the user is involved with your app? There are some metrics that can measure if users are in fact using your app or if they forgot about it.

The last one will show you the frequency which the user uses your app, the space of time that it was not accessed. When the interval is short, it means that the things are going great.

Quality of the app and it performance

One of the best ways to decide if an app has good quality or not, is by looking into its reviews and ratings. And also is a great opportunity for a developer find out what are the main problems in the app to correct them.

So, the feedback in itself is an important metric to decide the upcoming updates on the app. Negative points will be taken note of to improve the app and positive points will be used to keep it going better.

Even the concurrence can be a good metric to define the quality of your app. Be it for analyzing feedback and see mistakes or see what positive things can be done to contribute to your strategy.
