Further study indicates that when I run the DEMO it assumes that I am doing a query in the same zip code and for the exact same job parameters of the job I am looking at. Then I tested a query for the same zip code but did not select a particular size of job and I suddenly become aware that SIZE MATTERS! What has the size of the job got to do with my profile? I will be the same home inspector for a 4,000S.F. job as I am for a 2,000S.F. job. What exactly has the job size got to do with the quality of my work. EVERY ONE OF MY 10 REVIEW IS FIVE STARS. EVERY CUSTOMER THAT I SERVE IS TOTALLY SATISFIED WITH MY WORK. And still I will never rank higher than 5 or 8 or 10. And there is no logic in where I rank. ALL THE SAME PROS SHOW UP IN ALL THE ZIP CODES I QUERY. Why does a zip code change my rank? Does Thumbtack think my quality goes down (or up) based on where I work?
