When I google Roofers in Martinez my company does not appear. How can I get it to appear on the first page preferably in the top 5.

There are a couple of factors that determine where your ad shows, but the main ones are your Bid amount and the ad's Quality Score. You may have a high quality ad but a low bid, so increasing your bid amount could bring your ad to the first page. https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2459326?hl=en

 

You can also set your campaign's automatic bid strategy to target anywhere on the first page, or at the top of the first page: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2979071?hl=en

 

Check the status of your keywords to see what Adwords recommends: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/7029508?co=ADWORDS.IsAWNCustomer%3Dfalse&hl=en-AU

Hi Crader C,

 

Sounds like your question is about organic search results. If this is about AdWords and paid advertising, Dean E has given you a good start. If you want to improve your position in the organic listings, you might do better in the Webmasters Forum, https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/webmasters

 

Best of Luck!

@Crader C to get any specific advice on this forum, you need to list the details of your business: name, address, phone number and website.

On the "Keywords" page, add these columns: "Est First Page Bid", and "Top of Page Bid". Set your bid at least as high as "Est First Page Bid". 

 

There are many reasons your ad may not appear each time you Google it.  When you enter the same search term several times and do not click on it, then Google stops dishing the ad to you.  Also, your ads are not displayed "all the time" -- they are metered throughout the day.  Your budget may not be high enough.  etc. 

 

It is better to use the "Ad Preview & Diagnostic Tool" to see if your ads are running and how they'll rank.  Goto Tools > Ad Preview and Diagnosis, and enter a search term. 

 

hth!
