My plugin doesn't show up in searches of plugin directory? (5 posts)

    I think there might be something wrong with my readme file or something? I've created and submitted a plugin to the repository/ plugin directory, and on launch day it was very popular, but now nobody is finding it. MY description appears truncated, and when I try to search for it, the plugin never shows up in search results. I'm not sure what's going on here...my screenshot also never shows up.

    The plugin is called "page comments off please".

    Here's the page for it:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/page-comments-off-please/

    Here's some searches where I would expect it to turn up:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php/page/11?q=turn+off+page+comments

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=uncheck+comments

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php/page/6?q=page+comments+default&sort=new

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=disable+page+comments&sort=new

    Even searching for the plugin by name doesn't bring it up in results:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=page+comments+off+please&sort=new

    What's going on here?
