Two weeks ago when I was adding localisation support for my app, I unintentionally changed English title to German title without noticing then nightmare started: my download was cut 50% off and raking went down by 200. Three days later I discovered my stupid mistake and I changed the app title back but until today I didn’t see any indication that daily download is recovering.
I believe no one has experience like me cause it’s stupid. My question is does Google Play need a long time to reestablish my ranking and download from scratch?
Like the others said, it should re-stabilize in time. Maybe not putting you back where you were, but somewhere close at least.
Be thankful you didn’t accidentally translate something to an insulting word. I once did that for my Russian title and oh boy did people lash out. Didn’t realise for about 1 month, but the rating has recovered now. Just takes time.
Dude, when I i added start-app to my popular app I forgot to update my developer-id and app-id and they remain default for 1 month, yes 1 month until I was updating my app and accidently found my mistake. Till then very min. revenue was generated from start-app(from my other less famous app, I use same app-id for all apps) and all I was thinking that the network sucks or people don’t like startapp. And the day after i updated my app with correct id’s I made 18$/day instead of $2/day. It was a damn lesson for me.
