Description

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.

Hello there

Thank you for your ticket but this is reported in the wrong Trac... This sounds like a Meta issue and not really an issue with WordPress core.
Could you report it here? https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/
