I can't find my business on google when I search using keywords

No matter the keyword, I am unable to find my business on google search. I can find it when I search for the company name (pitch black electric llc) but that's it. even using the zip code 15317 or spelling the city (canonsburg, PA.) nothing.  plus.google.com/+Pitchblackelectricllc I was able to find a thread about this problem but never any answers.

Your business showed up for me in the 'maps' results as well. I searched for electrician canonsburg pa, then clicked on 'more places', then had to zoom out one level, then your business showed up. 

I guess my real question though... what is you would most like answered? Is your business listing somehow broken? (It doesn't appear to be, at first glance). Or are you asking how Google decides which businesses to show customers, and which to leave in the background? I'd be happy to link you towards some 101 information on what it takes to rank well as a local business owner, but the super quick and dirty version, is that there's a couple different areas that matter. Which websites link to you? (Your site turned up 0 backlinks... I've literally never even seen that before. Is your site new?) Which directories and business sites (Yelp, manta, bbb, etc.) have an entry for your business? How much confidence does Google have that your site is accurate and worth showing to customers? (There's some work to be done there too). It looks to me like your site and Google my Business profile are set up correctly, they're just not showing well at all. 

Moz' local learning center isn't a bad place to go spend half an hour if you want to get up to speed on the basics and start thinking about a plan of attack.

I am having a similar problem.  My old job has me listed, and when I search my name, only the old listing pops up.  Now that I have my new business, how do I get it to come up and not the old listing?
