so, the problem is that i want when some person search for particular item, i want to show them in the relevance order

for e.g.
somebody searches for "plastic container & raw material"

so i want the record to search for "plastic", "plastic container", "raw material", & "plastic raw material" and single words like "plastic", "Container", "Raw", "Material"

after the searching i want to put them in relevant order
-such as the string which contain the actual term should be at top
-String containing maximum number of keywords should be placed afetr that
-string contining all the single letters should be placed at last

Please help me
