Why Won't My "Company Name" Rank in Google?

by 36 replies
I purchased a domain name a few months ago but never really did anything with it.

A few weeks ago I put up a website, fresh content, nice design, etc.

However, my "Company Name" still won't rank in Google? See below:

"Company Name" - doesn't rank
"CompanyName" - doesn't rank
"CompanyName.com" - ranks!

The website doesn't have any links pointing to it. I've purchased 5 web 2.0 links that should be going live within 10 days or so.

Any ideas on how to QUICKLY get "Company Name" to rank in Google...?

    In few days you can't achieve rank so it is better if you build high quality backlink using your keywords.

    I think you should never buy links, it's not good. So, you can do proper onpage and offpage activities and also do SMO activies.

    If your company is not ranking on Google or other search engine, then you need to SEO of it. As we all know that to get ranked on Google we need to focus on Keywords through which we can rank well. Keywords should be according to category as well as keywords should be not so much competitive. Website design is also a feature through which we can do this.

    It may take some to get indexed by Google. You may check with webmaster tool to identify the issues during crawling/indexing.

    Maybe youre in a high competitive niche (u should've showed us ur domain).
    There are some keywords yo really cant rank with, especially in finance, insurance, health, just to name a few. The big boys have spent thousands to rank on them.

    There are many reasons to it depending upon your situation.

    Case 1
    If your company name keyword is highly competitive then it would be difficult to get rank so easily. Check if any other company uses similar name and might have optimized their website to get rank for company name keyword.

    Case 2
    If your company name keyword is not highly competitive then try to put your company name along with address in google search, if you don't see your company's listing which means that there is no index page available at Google for your Company Listing, To correct this simply follow below steps.

    First Go to Google Business (Formerly Google Places) and add your company details along with your website details, complete both Phone as well as Address verification. Once done your Google Business Listing will appear in searches and though if the company name keyword is highly competitive your listing will start appearing in local searches.

    I hope this helps you !

    It happens when your site is not ranking well and way behind millions of sites...when you type something on Google, it considers them keywords and rank sites accordingly...so even if your URL contains the words, it won't show up until you have good traffic and substantial links pointing to your site...

    If it ranks for "CompanyName.com" - looks like it is indexed. But as it`s fresh and got zero backlinks - no wonder it is not showing up yet. Build more strong backlinks, extend the content and investigate the winning pages for keywords you target to see which tactics are working for the niche.

    That`s quite hard to give any specific advice not knowing the niche, the keywords and the website, but if your company name is not a branded name but consists of generic niche keywords - you`ll have to put some more efforts into beating the competitors with websites relevant to those keywords (with better content / stronger backlink profiles).

    Follow these suggestions, and watch your website rise the ranks to the top of search-engine results.
    • Publish Relevant Content - Quality content is the number one driver of your search engine rankings and there is no substitute for great content. Quality content created specifically for your intended user increases site traffic, which improves your site's authority and relevance.
    • Update Your Content Regularly - Regularly updated content is viewed as one of the best indicators of a site's relevancy, so be sure to keep it fresh.
    • Metadata - When designing your website, each page contains a space between the <head> tags to insert metadata, or information about the contents of your page.
      Title metadata - It is responsible for the page titles displayed at the top of a browser window. It is the most important metadata on your page.
      Description Metadata - It is the textual description that a browser will use in your page search return.
      Keyword metadata - They are the search phrases that people type when they want to find your page. You'll want to include a variety of phrases.
    • Have a link-worthy site - Focus on creating relevant links within the text.
    • Use alt tags - Always describe your visual and video media using alt tags, or alternative text descriptions. They allow search engines to locate your page.

      Yeah..sure. Meta title IS NOT USED BY ANYONE ON THIS PLANET IN 2017.

      Watch your website sink to the bottom if you are using meta title....ROTFLMAO!

      Anyway..back to reality.

      Your site is not ranking for your business name for 2 reasons, and 2 reasons only.

      1) Your site is not indexed.
      2) Your "company name" is the same as big companies or phrases they own the market on.

      If your business name is McD's Hamburgers...you are screwed.

      However, I bet if your site is indexed.....you will be able to find it "ranking" by adding something to the search.

      Of course nobody will ever find it....not that there's anything wrong with that...
