We are currently at #28 in Top Paid Adventure and #33 in Top Paid Puzzle (USA). We didn't choose a Secondary Category at all.

Does anyone know if choosing a Secondary Category (maybe Entertainment?) will help or hinder the overall standings?

I believe the second category is only used for searches, and shouldn't impact your rankings.

As far as I've seen in the past year, the secondary category is completely ignored. It was working when the App Store first opened, but I believe they turned it off, since all the Games were being listed under Games and Entertainment, making Entertainment too big, and drowning out the non game apps. Now you can't be in both.
