Probably because you have been spoiled by Google - the Angies List search engine is pretty weak, so if you give it too many words to work with it starts returning garbage. Generally, if you use only one word - a unique word from the company name, or the most descriptive word for a category - like "inspection" in your case - it works better.


Or in the Search the List search list choose by category form the category list - Home Inspection in your case.


One other possibility - if your search radius is limited to such a small area that no hits come up, it starts trying harder to come up with hits and returns garbage - try widening the search radius out.


BTW, FYI - here is a link to the list of ALL the AL categories:
