There is no magic formula to get featured in either of the stores you should definitely try to increase your chances by using the following tips. Sometimes it will work, sometimes it won’t. You shouldn’t forget though - a well-promoted, high-quality product will eventually be found (even if you’re not lucky enough to get featured).

In order to give yourself a fighting chance for getting featured in the Google Play you should consider following the below tips:

1. Make your mobile app Android-friendly
When you think about getting featured in Google Play, you should design the app tailor-made for Android, so it doesn't look like it belongs to the App Store. It goes without saying that Google doesn’t want to support their competition. To get featured your application should have a unique Android look and feel (check the Material Design).

2. Use new technologies
Google Play will be more eager to support apps which integrate with their new products. If you see any new feature developed by Google, try to implement it in your app. Using this tip will greatly increase your chances of being featured in Google Play. Telegram might be a good example here - they started to support Android Marshmallow fingerprint device as soon as it appeared.

3. Social media marketing
Promote the mobile app in your social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.) - communicate with your potential audience and let them know that the new and shiny app is ready for download.

4. Technical requirements
Before even thinking about getting featured in Google Play you will have to be sure that you are meeting all their technical requirements. A good software house should take care of that step, so hopefully you don’t need to worry too much.

Yes, I agree app store optimization and mobile search engine optimization is important to get your App featured in Google Play store.
App Store Optimization is the process of optimizing mobile apps to rank higher in an app store’s search results. The higher your app ranks in an app store’s search results, the more visible it is to potential customers. That increased visibility tends to translate into more traffic to your app’s page in the app store. http://bit.ly/1lHnhBu
