    Problem with showing up on Google

    I work for a local business in town and the website of the company that I work for does not show up on google no matter what, even when I type in the exact company name. Now, the company facebook page (which is the first listing) shows up, next to our eBay account and even Google+ account, but there is no
    www.(companyname).com in the google listing. I have gone 3-4 pages deep in google and still nothing.
    The weird thing is when done in Bing, Yahoo Search, and DuckDuckGo it shows up first. And it is in the top 4 on all three other search engines when you type in music store and the name of the city.

    Why does it not show up in Google, but on the rest? We have a Google Business page with ratings and we regularly update our website with new content.
    Thanks!

    Could it be blacklisted on Google?

    I don't see why we would? We are just a small music store. Is there a way to check? How would I know?

    There are plenty of reasons Google might blacklist you. Here is an article that covers this.

    I find it very odd that you would rank on every other search engine except Google. Maybe someone else here has experienced this?

    Im not sure, but just to go out on a limb, have you double checked your robots.txt file? Maybe someone made a mistake in there and google isn't indexing your site?

    If thats not it, and you checked what Matt suggested I am at a loss. Those are the only 2 explanations I could come up with.

    Have you also tried searching for (domain).com instead of www.(domain).com?

    The other place to try is in Google Webmaster Tools. Check your crawl stats, errors,etc. See how many pages are indexed. See if there are any error messages or suggestions for improvement. They pretty much give you everything you need to make sure you're at least indexed.

    One other thing to check is to make sure you don't have any web.config/.htaccess/other potential spots where Googlebot might be blocked, either by IP or user agent.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    1> Check the htaccess page to make sure legit search bots have not been blocked. The webmaster may have blocked them all by mistake.
    2> Open a google webmaster tools account and submit the site.

    Firstly, check your robots file which is used to allow the search engines to crawl your website and also you need to improve your website presence in the search engines by building some high authority backlinks.
