Plugin Search Algorithm Modification

Description

I tried searching plugins with the keyword 'string' but the first result it showed was w3 total cache and plugins having 'string' in the title came at fourth and fifth place. Same with the 'buddypress', initial two results were fine but then MailChimp came and then other plugins with 'buddypress' in their title. Can we modify the search algorithm in a way so that it returns results with the title first and then other things? I think that looks more relevant as per the user's perspective.

Thank you for the request, @prashantvatsh!

As this is an issue with WordPress.org, we handle these issues over on meta.trac.wordpress.org, so I'm going to close this one.

You can read some previous discussion on how plugin names are weighted in search results on #meta3963.
