How to Choose Which Tags to Add

Google recommends to be very careful when selecting tags and to only choose tags that clearly describe your app or game’s features or functionality. For example a traditional crossword game could add the tags ‘word’ or ‘crossword’ but should not add the tag ‘word search’. ‘Word search’ typically refers to a different type of word games and does not describe the functionality of a traditional crossword game.

You can add up to 5 tags to your app listing. Google will present you with suggested tags but if you think there are more relevant tags you can choose to search through the list and add the tags that best describe your app or game.
