DocuSign is among the leading PDF & Electronic Signature and Agreement apps in app stores today. With over a million people who have downloaded the app, DocuSign has enjoyed a relatively high ranking in the App Store. In fact, DocuSign, by the time of this writing, is rated to be the #92 app in the Productivity category.
While DocuSign has already accomplished things that other PDF & Electronic Signature and Agreement apps haven’t achieved, there is still a way to maximize their app store visibility and therefore increase their chance of getting noticed.
After all, the biggest room is the room for improvement. No matter how great DocuSign might already be, they can still do something to reach the number 1 spot and not be overtaken by competitors.
In this ASO audit, let’s take a look at how DocuSign can improve its keyword ranking in the most efficient way possible.
We did a quick keyword research for DocuSign. We have shared the details at the end of this post.
Looking at the research result, we can see that we are already ranking for some important keywords. Nevertheless, we have identified some great opportunities for us to take advantage of.
In this situation, ASO intelligence tools come in handy. These tools are effective in identifying popular keywords with the lowest competition. For example, in ShyftUp, we use Mobile Action to perform reliable keyword research.
Among the results we get is the term Search Score. Here’s a quick overview:
The Search Score ranges from 5 to 100. The score represents the number of users who are searching for a specific keyword compared to other keyword options in the App Store and Google Play.
To give you an example, one of the keywords with the highest ranking is the keyword, “Facebook.” It has a search score of 100.
The lowest score is 5, which means no one is virtually searching for that keyword. Most keywords will never even see a score beyond 5.
Going back to the results that we got, here’s how DocuSign’s ranking looks like:
“Documents” keyword has a search score of 60, which we rank at no. 16.
“Forms” keyword has a search score of 51, which we rank at no. 31.
“PDF editor” keyword has a search score of 51, which we rank at no. 59.
“Document editor” keyword has a search score of 34, which we rank at no. 44.
“Signs” keyword has a search score of 22, which we rank at no. 30.
We also did research on competitor keywords. We got the following results:
“Adobe” keyword has a search score of 63, which we do not rank.
“Zoho” keyword has a search score of 44, which we do not rank.
“Pdffiller” keyword has a search score of 29, which we rank at no. 30.
The results show us that there is a lot of work to do. To ensure that we climb up the rankings, we should use these keywords in our metadata.
