Hi IB JB, it takes time and AFAIK google play store uses ranking algorithms similar to how google ranks sites on the web. So aside from ratings you also need backlinks and "social signals" in form of g+ shares for the app to rank high in search. But try avoiding unnatural spikes of g+ and 5 star rankings - you may get penalized by the algorithm instead.
