Hi John :-)
Welcome to the Google Analytics Community

Regarding site links, from the help docs

We only show sitelinks for results when we think they'll be useful to the user. If the structure of your site doesn't allow our algorithms to find good sitelinks, or we don't think that the sitelinks for your site are relevant for the user's query, we won't show them.

Reference:  https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/47334?hl=en

 

You mention that your focus keyword is not particularly common, in which case google search may not associate the focus keyword with the content on those pages.

 

For further help with SEO related questions, I suggest asking on the Webmaster Central Help Forum which can be found here:

If you have further questions about/or need help with Google Analytics, pls post back

 

Thanks
Bronwyn :-))
