    I've never seen this before


    I have a client who's website has been live for months. There are external links pointing at the site. Google has indexed the pages.
    I have created and verified a Google+ page for the business.
    However, when you Google the brand name of the business ' silver star gallery' the Google+ profile appears in the search results on the right but NOT the website - not in the top 100 places. I have never seen this before. have checked blacklisted domains but no progress.
    However when you search silver star gallery on Bing it ranks page 1
    The domain is silverstargallery.com
    Any help appreciated

    Change your H3 to a H1, 'Silver Star Gallery' add a H2 or H3 later on perhaps - just gentle top level things like that can help. You could also mark up the H1 with schema as a brand, https://schema.org/Brand

    The homepage has been indexed, I've just checked that.

    Thanks but none of that explains why it doesn't appear in Google for its own brand name

    They are, there's onpage things that you need to do that will help your brand name rank. At the minute there are better sites that are suited to rank for this query.

    Also your website takes a while to load, I can offer you some basic advice for that if you want?

    That doesn't explain why it doesn't rank in the top 100!

    You have access to all your privileged information, which means you are in the best position to tell us the "why?"

    If your domain name had no keywords in it ... That would suggest a problem...

    But the individual words paint a different picture.

    Silver (as in a precious metal) is very competitive to start with.

    Star (as in a movie star or celestial body) is also very competitive, and

    Gallery (as in a form of museum) is also very competitive.

    If you did some deep results research you would likely find an assortment of these in results.

    Although, fixing this is rather simple with some natural brand oriented links from Yahoo, BOTW, DMOZ, local Chamber of Commerce, and industry associations.

    I assume you have checked search console for any penalties

    There is just so much on site stuff to do I don't know where to start.
    Basically It don't rank for the brand because google have no idea or at least very little clues what the brand name is.

    Even the address at the bottom could do with adding geographic markup
    an example of how to do it is here https://www.searchenginejournal.com/...cal-seo/60245/

    I have checked for penalties yes and malware. Even if you search silverstargallery.com it still doesnt list on google page 1 even though the pages are indexed. It's bizarre. I don't think it's anything to do with seo issues.

    Put "silverstargallery.com" into the search box. When did you move from http://stores.ebay.co.uk/silverstargallery to the domain name?

    Shut down your ebay store or develop original content for silverstargallery.com.

    Google doesn't need the latter with the former indexed.

    Ok, had a bit of a look around.
    This would have been a lot easier if you said you or they had just put the site live. The responses would have been a lot easier.

    I can find no record of this site existing prior to this year. yes the domain was purchased a while ago but would appear to have been parked for some time. It also has pretty much zero backlinks. Even the way back machine has no record of it.

    If I am mistaken please give us details of history.

    Not sure if this helps, but none of the keyword research (competitor analysis) tools have any information on this domain. Are you sure it's indexed? It seems like it isn't.

    Don't know if "ismysiteindexed" is a reliable source, but it says that your website is not indexed.

    a simple [site:domain-name] will answer your thoughts.
    it's indexed
