I would desperately like your help. Do your good deed for the day and see if you can help!

What keywords are you looking to rank for ?
Apr 20th, 2013, 01:35 AM
as sub said what is it your looking to feature under?
But we do not feature in Google at all

The terms we would be looking for are First Aid Training. But in terms of non-branded search terms hardly anything is there. On google webmaster we only have 3 pages out of 300 showing as indexed.
This leads to believe there is a tech problem stopping us geting listed.

You have about 3010 pages indexed- https://www.google.com/search?q=site...ient=firefox-a
Ranking is a different issue altogether...it will take time to investigate...Cannot tell you anything concrete before i get a full analysis done on your domain and your competitors. I need to see your webmasters tools and google analytics if possible.
You can email me at subzero27 at gmail dot com . I will take a look

What are you doing for links?

It seems to me that you don't know where you are but you want to get going to somewhere else!
You are in Google's top 30 for "First Aid Training" for users in the UK that search that term (ahead of some 216 million other sites!). Were you aware of that?
You need to slow down, compile a list of keywords that you actually want to rank for, make sure you know how to assess where you actually currently rank and take things from there. Deciding which pages will target which keywords and how....
When you have those keywords spend some time reviewing them. For example, for "First Aid Training" your competition includes St John's and the Health and Safety Executive - should you expect to rank higher than them?
Perhaps you would be better off pursuing something like "First Aid Training Scotland" which would be more relevant to internet users as well. I studied in Glasgow but now I live in London, if I typed "First Aid Training" into Google and it suggested an organisation 350 miles away I wouldn't be happy - except for a good excuse to visit Glasgow again ;-)
Yes, your GWT is probably set up incorrectly because as subzero27 said above you have about 3,000 pages indexed by Google.

I see 2840 pages indexed too. I only had a brief look but I don't initially see anything that looks out of place.
The cookies thing could take up less space though - like more of a strip across the page like other sites do.
It is possible (unlikely but possible) that you some how managed to view your site on Google on a data center that didn't have much of your results.
What does your web traffic look like? What about Google Analytics, server logs or other metrics you may have?
