Magento 1.9.1
Porto theme

When we do a search for a word which is also contained in product names - it returns all kinds of products but does not show the products that actually have that word in their product names first.

What is the best way to make the Search look for products that contain the search for word first?

My settings are as follows:

Catalog Search
Minimal Query Length = 1
Maximum Query Length = 128
Maximum Query Words Count = 10
Search type = Combine (Like and Fulltext)
Apply Layered Navigation if Search Results are Less Than: 2000

I wouldn't mind installing an extension if it improves the search results.
