There are lots of newcomers this month. Among Us! was the most downloaded app for the App Store, Google Play Store, and overall, despite being new to the Top 10 list. We’re 7 months into the pandemic and when boredom strikes mobile games are the first we turn our heads to. Among Us! being played online either in private rooms you create with your friends or by joining a random room around the world, makes for a perfect quarantine game.
However, game is one of the most competitive categories in the app stores and it doesn’t just take luck but also strategy getting into the top 10 list so suddenly. Let’s take a look at where they’ve gotten their organic downloads from and their popularity around the world.
How Among Us Gets Its Organic Downloads

Besides brand keywords (the keyword that is used to directly spot a specific app in the store), Among Us! got the majority of its downloads from keywords like “games” “free games” etc. which can further indicate to the game’s popularity right now.
Another thing we can see on the screenshot above is Among Us!’s whopping visibility score of 94! This is an A+ visibility score, so let’s go over to their Visibility Chart to see if there has indeed been any spikes in their visibility for the past months.
