    Weird new search algorithm

    Hello Folks,
    I wanted to ask you all whether I am the only one who has experienced this: since the 10th of the month, my sales have slowed down significantly.

    I have done some looking and found out that my app was all but banished from search - for example, search for Calculator and TouchCalc is on page two or so (and it once was a best seller in Business category).

    To me, it looks like sorting takes place strictly by Application ID (the number after the / in the URL) nowadays: can anyone of you confirm or deny this?

    All the best
    Tam

    I can not see any problems with the search, it appears to be working just fine.

    Hi,
    now this is weird. If you look for Calculator (http://store.ovi.com/search?q=calculator), TouchCalc is on the second page even though it was a bestseller just a few days ago.

    Could you look at this for me again?

    Could be that it is now selling less than the others for spome reason, anyway, the search works, it does find your app, maybe you need to play around with the keywords to get it behave as you would wiash it to behave..
