    It’s there, just not on the first page: https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/writing+on+github/page/8/

    I think the plugin repository has been updated so that it matches results based on real search terms. It’s not clear what the search criteria is, but that’s a good thing to stop people gaming the system.

    I use the name of my plugin to search, it is not on the first page.

    I think this is a bug.

    What do you think?

    I think the ranking system is cleverer than simply keyword-matching and relies on multiple avenues of information that wouldn’t normally be populated by a 1-day-old plugin.

    Age is definitely a factor, and you’re not going to get page one results on the first day. Wait a while.

    Thank you for your reply.
    It’s my mistake.
    I convert readme.txt form README.md. Has not remove badge icon.
    Now, I remove badge icon.
    My plugin back to the first page when searching by plugin name.

    Thanks.
