Category Rankings

Category rankings page provides information about app rank on stores along with some useful insights about app visibility across different countries. 

Let's have look at the useful insights you can find in each of the section below.

Before you start, make sure you have selected the filters you need on the top of the page: app, device and time span. Worldwide will be selected automatically, but you can pick any country to narrow down your research. Once the filters are set, you will be able to see the countries where your app ranks in Top -1, Top -10 and Top -100. Green and red numbers on the right indicate a drop or a rise that have taken place within the time span you have selected. 

Top Growing and Top Losing show the countries where your apps are the most or the least popular. Green and red numbers with arrows indicate the change that have taken place within the time span you select on the top of the page. 

The ranks are updated once a day in the night (UTC time-zone). While the positions in the store can change several times during the day. The lower the app position is, the more noticeable the changes.

Hover over the map to see the details about your app ranking or switch to a Line Chart. On the right, you can see a small window showing app rank in top countries. 

If WorldWide filter is chosen - then only free/paid category positions are shown in Category Ranking position list. If you choose other countries manually - then free/paid/ gross positions will be shown.
