Build an MVP and launched on ProductHunt

This was the first product I posted on ProductHunt and didn't know what it's like to post on the site.
The result is that right after I posted, Pomofocus started to get featured by many bloggers. Also, the app gradually started to climb Google ranking. This was unexpected and I was very happy.
However, it is kind of get stuck around the 30th of Google rank.

      Hi kobbi, I use Digital Ocean to host my app and Mongo Atlas to host my data. I heard firebase is easy and useful, but I'm pretty much comfortable with MongoDB :)
