If I do this search; advertising companies, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560095, India, your business is #7 in the list supplied by google. It looks like you are in an urban area with a great deal of competition so #7 is not really that bad but that was a fairly specific search too.

It's possible that your ranking may have been affected by recent algorithm updates, @nithin b. While I am unable to confirm any specifics of this update (not that I know of any in the first place), I can recommend that you check out some of the more popular SEO blogs' reports on any notable changes. While not an "official" Google news source, SEO website Moz regularly updates a timeline of major changes to Google Search algorithm. They include links to relevant blog articles that can contain specifics along with speculation that may help you determine specifically what may be affecting your ranking. You can check out this resource and learn more here: Google Algorithm Change History @ Moz
