#7202: Search issues on wp.org

 Hi Team,

 We have noticed an unusual behavior on the wp.org search. It is displaying
 unrelated plugins and also prioritizes inactive plugins over active ones.
 [If you try performing this
 search](https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/product+bundle/) "Search for
 product bundle", you will notice that the [Ovic Product
 Bundle](https://wordpress.org/plugins/ovic-product-bundle/), which is an
 inactive plugin with a poor description, appears second on the list, which
 is quite strange. On the other hand, the active plugin, [Product Bundle
 Builder for WooCommerce](https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-product-
 bundles-for-woocommerce/), which has a better description, is not given
 the same priority.

 Furthermore, in some cases, we have observed that unrelated plugins are
 ranked higher than the relevant ones. For instance, there was a plugin
 that remained in the second position on the list for a while, despite
 being unrelated. You can perform [this
 search](https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/discount/) "search for
 discount", [this plugin](https://wordpress.org/plugins/paid-memberships-
 pro/) was on the second of the list for a while!

 We would appreciate your feedback on this matter.

 Thank you.
