I'm trying to figure out why my site doesn't show up on google.com (from the United States). Even if I search for the domain name (mysitename.com) on google.com, the site doesn't show up. The only way to find the site is searching for mysitename .com (with a space).

However, if I try with a local Google site (spanish language), like www.google.co.ve, www.google.cl, www.google.es or www.google.mx, it shows up on top with a little effort.

The default site language is english (we also have spanish and portuguese versions).

The site is for an office space rental agency in the United States, therefore it should appear on google.com search results. I understand that some keywords could be very difficult to rank, but I don't understand why even using the site name, it doesn't show up.

I already setup the Google Webmaster Tools and chose the United States as site's target.

We use a hosting provider from Venezuela. Could be that the problem?

The site is www.gmtbusinessplace.com.

  • I think you need to provide your domain name? – Dave Aug 14 '12 at 9:40
  • Also when you say from United States what do you mean? The computer the search is being performed is in the USA or you're using .com (which is not the same) – Dave Aug 14 '12 at 10:05
  • www.gmtbusinessplace.com. The problem appears when you search from a computer in the USA. – Jose S Aug 14 '12 at 17:29

Two days after setting Geo Target with Google Webmasters, Google seems to be ranking the site on top when you search for 'GMT Business Place'.
