SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It’s the process of optimizing web pages to improve search engine ranking.  On the other hand, ASO stands for App Store Optimization. It’s the process of optimizing app store pages to get top ranking. 

Following are some differences;
1. The significant difference between the both is that ASO is done for mobile apps, whereas SEO is done for the web. 
2. Ranking factors for ASO and SEO are similar, but the algorithm placed on each is different. 
SEO ranking factors are; 

Meta title and meta description 


  • Keywords in the title tags (H1, H2, H3, etc.) 

  • Content optimization (images, text, etc.) 

  • Traffic 

  • Website health 

  • Backlinks Profile

ASO ranking factors are;

  • App icon 

  • Download number 

  • Backlinks 

  • Engagement 

  • App retention rate 

  • Conversion rate (general and CVR per keyword), etc.

ASO KPIs are:
