#2712: New search algorithm does not show expected results

Component:  Plugin Directory  |   Keywords:

 I have noticed that some plugins (including mine) have lost so many
 downloads/day due to the new search algorithm.

 In the old search algorithm, my plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins
 /advanced-database-cleaner/ was always shown in the first lines at the
 first page for the search terms "clean database". Now when I search for
 those terms, my plugin is in the 4th page. This is strange because I have
 good rating and good support... Instead, many  plugins that do not have
 any relationship with cleaning database and with less ratings and support
 are shown first.

 Any explanation please? Have I missed something?

 Thank you.
