Q: "When I search AppExchange for an app, the results aren't very useful and come back in a weird order. What's up with that?"

A: I don't know the cause, but I definitely agree; AppExchange's search 
  1. only looks for the exact words you type, and 
  2. orders the results haphazardly.
Here's what I do: use Google's Advanced Search instead.

  1. smarter word searching and
  2. better ordering.
Let me know if you think of other improvements!
