Smart App Banner not showing for my application when application is not installed

I'm using the meta tag for displaying my application ios in the app banner for iphone/ipad devices.

<meta name="apple-itunes-app" content="app-id=xxxxxxx"/>


when I do tests using an Iphone, the banner worked very will if the application is installed, if it's not installed the banner is not showing.

I do also the same test with others applications like facebook and others, the banner works fine in all cases.

What can be the problem ?

From http://www.raywenderlich.com/80347/smart-app-banners-tutorial:

Users can easily dismiss a Smart App Banner by tapping the X button on the left. Once dismissed, it doesn’t show itself again for that user on that website, even if the website is reloaded. The only way to get it to show again is if the user clears some metadata on that iOS device.
