 Reviewed all the searches from this thread, and with the most recent
 version of search I think they are all working well.

 After the Deadline is on the first page, but is also at the bottom almost
 entirely because it hasn't been updated in five years. Given that we
 (Automattic) are quite intentionally not working on AtD, I think that is
 ok. It would be very easy to get it up to the top of the results by just
 updating it.

 Even though the user is explicitly looking for it, I think increasing the
 ranking for slug/title further might hurt other results and doesn't help
 end users find a functional plugin. If we have examples where the plugins
 are not old and don't seem to rank well we should look at those of course
 (and we have been), but let's open those into other tickets.
