After your content starts ranking in the search results or gets picked up in different mobile help forums and social media, you can then start focusing on different ways to monetize your content.

A great way to do this would be through watching reviews on YouTube (like the one below), or even creating one of your own.
Focus on the Features of the App
Your blogs must talk about the different features that the app has. You have two choices; you can mention them with brief details in a list format, or you can make subheadings of each feature and discuss them. Because Google is sensitive about use of keywords, make sure you use the right keywords in a natural flow with the content.

- Monitor SMS and iMessages

- Monitor GPS locations
- Use Geo-fencing
