    There's tons of reasons. Maybe the page is too new, maybe you're not targeting the keywords properly, maybe the keyword is so competitive that it's nearly impossible to rank, maybe your page isn't properly setup or welcoming to Google spiders, etc.

    It's hard to say, but I'm going to guess it's one of these factors.

    You mean your website is not ranking well. Keywords are search terms . It is up to the writer to make sure that his or her content is valuable and optimized. I think you need to revisit the page that you are talking about maybe update the page ,check website load speed .There are so many reasons why certain words are not ranking. Maybe you can add in a few keyword phrases relating to the words add in a video , compressed images etc....

    Your site may have some on page optimization issues (for example: page takes too much time to load, broken links on site, duplicate content, ect), or it does not have quality backlinks to it. You should first make sure that your website is properly optimized for your targeted keywords. Then, focus on building links to your site that are dofollow, relevant, and contextual. Once those links get indexed in Google, you should see a boost in rankings.

    Because of any on-site or off-site issue.

    This question is really really incomplete because without some specific information. Answering this question without knowing what OP has done for his/her site is like "a shot in the dark"

    There could be tons of reasons as said above. You have to be more generic or provide the information regarding strategies you're following to rank your website.
