Site ranking for yahoo and bing but not google

I have 2 sites. one is 4 months old and the other is 10 months old. Both are ranking for some keywords on yahoo and bing on 1st and 2nd pages pages but nowhere on Google. Has anybody had this type of situation? Any explanation why google does not rank my sites but yahoo and bing like it enough to put me on the 1st page?

This happens quite often. There are a number of reasons why your site does not appear on first few search result pages of Google. Google Webmaster lists out a few things you can look into to find out why your site is not ranking well.

they both look at different things. Yahoo and bing are both working together now, so the results should be pretty similar between the two, however, Google has its own algorithm, and they have different factors that they are looking at. most of the time with google it is about the links, where your links are coming from and how many you have that they have indexed.

Hi,

You might also want to check that you're not sandboxed or penalized. If you are, then you will need to submit a reinclusion request to google via webmaster tools.

register your site with Google Webmaster Central, and they will tell you how they see your site, and what keywords they see it as being relevant for. http://www.google.com/webmasters/
