    My first app is up on the iTunes store. But when I search iTunes for what I think are the most appropriate keywords, it doesn't find it.
    How can I set keywords? Are there any tricks to this?

    From my experience, the searches depend not only on your description, but also your total downloads and you app's rating. If you're brand-new, you'll just have to wait for the downloads and the ratings to come in.

    Your description is probably good as it is now -- a lot of people will search for "clothes" and that's probably your best shot as catching people's eyes.

    Now if only I'd seen the more results button sooner. There it is a few pages in... So I guess if I get more downloads, it'll move up the ranks.
