1. Looks like more and more developers are being picked up by Google these days for policy violations. The Creative Commons attribution is something I find is really easy to forget, but it’s obviously important and I might have to get more aware on this aspect :)

    I think it would be great if Google had some sort of “warning” system in place where they could alert developers to potential TOS violations before actually removing the app. It seems that 90% of the problems are accidental, and it wouldn’t be very encouraging to have an app removed on the spot without any chance to fix things.

  2. If your app was suspended for keyword spamming, do they allow you to remove the keyword spamming and unsuspend your app? I thought keyword spamming within reason was the aim of the game.

    • Hi Coder
      I’ve never heard of a case where this had been possible. In the developer content policies they state ‘Do not post repetitive content. Product descriptions should not be misleading or loaded with keywords in an attempt to manipulate ranking or relevancy in the store’s search results.’. So the game is probably intended to be more like your or our job is to describe your or our apps and the algorithm’s job is to show the most relevant apps to the user.

  3. Hello,

    First let me thank you for your blog.

    Today Google sent me an email “7-Day Notification of Android Market Developer Term Violation” about “Spam and Placement in the Store.” I think it was by the number of keywords that contained my description.

    A while ago I changed my description but left some keywords, do you think that I meet the requirements? Do not quite understand why I have notified.

    This is the site involved: https://market.android.com/details?id=es.luisjaviersanz.android.vatipsandgroups

    Thank you very much for your attention.


    • Hello Luis,

      I can’t find anything else but the keywords. Calling eight keywords a violation is a little too hard in my opinion though. Does “7-Day Notification” mean that you have seven days to fix the issue?

      Best regards
