Hi! Does anyone know how the Firefox extension search relevance ranking is determined?
I publish an extension called Stock Inspector, which shows users stock prices. My users are unhappy that they cannot find my extension using super relevant keywords.
For example, with this search for “stock”, sort by relevance, add-on type = extension, operating system = macOS:
- The top result is uBlock Origin, which doesn’t say anything about stock on its AMO page.
- There are 11 blocking extensions on the first page that aren’t related to stock.
- Many other types of irrelevant extensions show up on the first page. For example, FoxClocks, a clock extension that also doesn’t say thing about stock on its AMO page.
- My extension Stock Inspector doesn’t show up on the first page.
