Comment (by sslzen):

 How about case #2? It doesn't follow the rules laid out in the algorithm.
 What am I missing?

 Case 2: WP LetsEncrypt – ONE CLICK single / wildcard Free SSL certificate
 & force HTTPS
 The plugin is ranked #4 for SSL versus my plugin which is ranked #6
 The plugin has 1,000+ active installs compared to SSL Zen's 10,000 active
 The plugin has a rating of 4.5 compared to SSL Zen's 4.8 rating
 The plugin has 11/13 support issues resolved, compared to SSL Zen's 3/3
 support issues resolved


 The description for all those plugins contain the word "SSL". The entire
 readme is included in searches, not just "Title, Slug, Excerpt or tags".

 The code says that if a plugin title and tag match the search term, it's
 prioritized over other plugins, that doesn't seem to be the case in W3
 Total Cache.

 'multi_match' => array(
 'query'  => $args['query'],
 'fields' => $boost_title_fields,
 'type'   => 'best_fields',
 'boost'  => 2,
