 Please read the post I linked you to, plus the posts it links to like

 We did the legwork here.

 I'm not going to argue with you anymore about this, since you don't seem
 to understand that search terms and tags are separate for a reason, and
 optimizing 'forms' so that a plugin you're looking for shows up earlier is
 fundamentally flawed when you consider that the exact same search in other
 engines nets similar results.

 Yes, we should improve the search. This '''specific''' case that you have
 presented is not a valid direction of improvement as you're asking us to
 improve an incredibly generic term for a specific result, and that's not
 how search works.
