 User don’t have access to the Popular tags anymore on the Wordpress.org
 directory. That makes it harder for them to find what they need.

 From the statistics of our plugin if we take all the popular tags out of
 our readme file. Very few people find the plugin even if it ranks on the
 first position on several keywords.

 If we put them back they find us mostly on the popular tags you can now
 find in the Feature section of the Dashboard.

 If users who search for plugins use this feature they should have access
 to it in the Wordpress Directory as well, as they could in the past.

 It is helpful especially for new Wordpress users that don’t know what are
 all the aspects they should be focusing on. Therefore, without the
 suggestions given by popular tags regarding what they could search for,
 their experience could be ruined. (as compared to wp veterans who already
 know what plugins to search for).
