Single list results are missing matching keywords

Using search terms:
shoeing|farrier truck|rig|body

I expect results with either "shoeing" or "farrier", and with either "truck" or "rig" or "body". However I get hits for things like cars for sale that have none of those words in them EXCEPT for "body".

How can I fix my search terms? Thanks!

We've recently (and hopefully temporarily) switched the Single List results to be powered by Bing instead of Google. Those same keywords should work for Bing, but it may not be interpreting them correctly. Does it help if you put parentheses around the two groups, like (shoeing|farrier) (truck|rig|body)?

Another option would be to switch to our Direct Results mode, which will pass your query straight through to craigslist. We recommend that for most searches.

Thank you, Nathan. Parentheses did the trick!
Thanks again,
