Comment (by joeguilmette):

 Disclosure: I work on WP All Import

 Interestingly, WP All Import is nowhere to be found on page 1 results when
 searching for 'import'. The first result is a 1 star'd plugin with 400
 actives, and the second is a third party add-on for WP All Import. There
 are plugins without any active installs that haven't been updated in two
 years on page 1.

 Anyway, I don't want this come off as me complaining that our plugin isn't
 doing better in search results. But since I work on it I pay more
 attention to its search results than other plugins. Hoping that this is
 just another data point you fine folks can use to help improve search
 results for users.
