Comment (by Ipstenu):

 Luke, you're changing your horse midstream and this doesn't help anything.

 Your ticket is invalid because you're attempting to use tags as search
 terms and that doesn't work. Google for those terms and you'll get the
 same result.

 You can read https://data.blog/2017/03/15/improving-relevance-and-
 elasticsearch-query-patterns/ for more about how it all works, but it's
 way more complicated than because a plugin doesn't use the .org forums.

 Which is not a secret by the way. Everyone knows we weight that. It's not
 just why the plugin you picked isn't showing up. It's that you picked a
 search pattern that is non-representational of how people actually use

 Which is why THIS ticket is invalid.
