Comment (by danieliser):

 @bfintal - I am thinking similarly though the problem may not be with the
 weighting per say, but with when the weighting is applied.

 I have a feeling that the weighting for active install count is applied
 during the initial search. IMHO that is wrong.

 Should be get all results relevant to the terms SEO weighted by their
 relevancy to the term (based on content, category, tags etc).

 Once that is done then apply weighting for active installs, review count /
 avg rating etc to sort the results of the query.

 I think if the first query takes AI into account at all the results will
 be wrong as they won't be relevant as much as higher weighted.

 Hope that makes since.
