If you find any issue with it like “Content Mismatch”, this clearly shows that there is some blocked content and you have to unblock that page.

Google offers you reports related to your weekly clicks and the impression updates that you can very easily access from the message centre that is present inside the Webmaster Tools account. Also, you can monitor about the web traffic that your application links are bringing to you. All this will help you in finding out the searcher’s behaviour and will also help you in improving the content.
- Check For All The Bugs And Errors In Your Application
Apart from content mismatch and things like Not Supported Internet URL errors, Google also provides android app developers a complete report on some other relevant errors as well like APK not found, this error comes when Google is not able to find out the package that has been associated with the Application, back button violation means the back button in the application is not directing the users to search their results, and No free first-click means the link in the application is not working. So it becomes really important to give a careful look to all such things.
- Introduce An Analytics Tool Along With Your App
You can set up your Google analytics with your android application that you have designed in order to find out the behaviour of your application. Google analytics is something that will help you in finding out the behaviour of your application and will also let you know how it is working. Also the application will help you in tracking the app users throughout different mobile devices with Android platform.
