    How much is "Getting featured" worth ? (Answer inside)

    [WordHero] was featured as follows:
    1) Indies section
    2) Main page (old format)
    3) Indies section (rerun several times)



    You might not realize it, but in the old version, 'getting featured' was HUGE. From memory, it worked like this:
    - week1: splash image goes on top in large format
    - week2: splash image moved down 1 slot, still on main page
    - week3: splash image reduced to 1/2 size and moved down 1 slot each week
    - week4: featured in 'Puzzles' category as large splash screen
    - week5: moved down 1 category
    - week6: 1/2 size

    Soo... 6 weeks of being highlighted by Google = crazy promotion. They don't do that any longer.

    It would be interesting to see the daily installs graph for the same period. As I have started to understand the market more, I have observed that 10000+ daily downloads is what any indie should look for.

    Those periods shown are over a week each (except the main feature, which is spelled out). So you can calc the daily install rate.

    Legit. Thanks!

    So they don't feature on main page anymore? Or what is the old way you are referring to?

    Did Google Translate just add some new slang dictionaries to their translation services ?
