Tired of constantly looking for new keywords for your app? Out of inspiration on which keywords you should be targeting in your ASO? Our AI-Generated Keyword List, powered by Atlas AI, is here to help! In just a click, receive 100 keywords related to your app to get a strong start on your ASO.

The first step of your keyword optimization process should always start by building a list of 100 to 200 keywords related to your app. To build a good keyword list, you need to think big: what keywords are potentially related to your app? Check the competition, put yourself in your users’ shoes, and think out of the box in order to find a broad range of relevant keywords.

Of course, building a 100-keyword list can be a tedious task. That’s why, at AppTweak, we have built an algorithm that fetches up to 100 keywords related to your app in just a click!

How does the AI-generated keyword list work?

Every day since 2014, AppTweak has collected data pertaining to millions of search terms on the App Store and Google Play in about 100 countries. This data has allowed us to refine our understanding of the true relationships between apps and keywords specifically in an app store context.

Let’s take the word “lime,” for example. In the human world, this keyword is semantically close to the word “lemon.” However, in an app store world, these two keywords are very different: the former would primarily refer to the popular scooter rental app, Lime, explaining why the store algorithms would consider “lime” and “scooter” to be conceptually close and both very different from “lemon.”

We have built one master algorithm, Atlas AI, that captures in one place the app-store-specific semantics of all keywords in any language, and all apps in any country or language, positioning each element on one centralized map.

Atlas AI allows us to identify thousands of keywords related to your app or apps similar to yours. The AI-Generated Keyword List then analyzes each word to keep only the most relevant and those with significant volume. Once the analysis is ready, a new keyword list is created for the analyzed app, with up to 100 related keywords.

Below are two examples of AI-Generated Keyword Lists for the apps Travel Booking and Adidas Running: Run Tracker. We only show a glimpse of the full list.

Identify keywords with the highest potential for your app

Once you have your list, you’ll then need to identify which keywords have the best potential for your app. These are the words you need to focus on and add to your app’s metadata. Not all keywords will be worth targeting – you should focus on the most relevant, and with the best volume.
