View Full Version : How Effective Are App Review Exchanges?

I've done this before but then I became a bit wary.

I think exchanging reviews with other app developer will bring more harm then good since the reviewers will most likely uninstall your app or game immediately after the review. As you know the uninstall rate can affect your ranking in Google Play Store.

So now I tried to avoid such practice. Unless the review is genuine and your app or game isn't removed immediately then I think that's fine.

What do you guys think?

Review exchanges are not genuine reviews (ppl review your app because you review theirs). You can get away with it, but most of the time Google will find out and remove the review (and likely give your app a penalty).

So, I would definately stay away from organised review exchangers (Google knows, Google sees).

On the other hand, it's great if you can convince your friends to give you reviews :)
