Plugin Search: Result ranking for exact matches are off

Reported by: ptasker Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


I noticed that the search results, even for exact matches are a little strange.

For example, my own plugin at https://wordpress.org/plugins/acf-code-field/ ranks on page 7:


Other plugins that don't _seem_ match the search query are ranked higher in results.

Currently the first result on https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/ACF+Code+Field/, so we'll chalk this up as fixed at some point.
