#2617: Plugin Directory Search Results

Comment (by Ipstenu):

 They're generic/common terms.

 Also "foobar plugin" is equivalent to "foobar" because plugin is the
 second worst search term to try and prioritize for in the plugin directory
 ("wordpress" is the worst if you wondered).

 Google search "WordPress form plugin" and look at how many pages you go
 before you find Formidable (middle of page 2). This is NOT a dig against
 them, it's just point out that it's a losing game and it's not realistic.

 Use tags for tags, not for search.
