Honorable Lockergnome community,

Does anyone know for sure when/why an app (iPhone/iPad) game hits Top 200 Paid Apps (games) at iTunes?

We are watching iTunes since the updates of our Zepi games have been released (when last updating, we switched from Action into Trivia category). They hit iTunes top in many countries (Trivia category) on the release date with just a few sales. We’ve witnessed days with no sales and the game was still featured in top positions. True, many updated versions were downloaded…

So, is there an interrelation between a top position at iTunes and the number of sales/downloads after being updated? How do the Apple team define the numerical position within the Top 200 Paid Apps? Or there is another basis for hitting the top chart? Any ideas?
