Mostly because the main search engines don't want your website to show up. Their business model is selling ads and key word response. Therefore, what they do is essentially everything they can to make your website invisible unless you're spending money with them.
For "natural" search they keep changing the rules to minimize its effectiveness.
This is a major part of why SEO is so complicated. There are literally dozens of aspects, content, format, design that must be addressed to "get found". If your competitors are buying the terms you're searching for you may never show up in a search using those terms.
The other thing to consider is that even if you do win the optimization war, in the short term...the search engine may just take you out of the results, because you aren't paying and because they can.
There are many companies that optimize the ad word buying process by using arbitrage type strategies in bidding for the key ad words in your marketing plan. This is complex, of course, but what they attempt to do is bid on each term, record the number of responses to that specific term, and the sales dollars the responses deliver, then calculate the ROI on buying responses to that particular term.

Hi Christian, there is a lot of information posted here already which may be quite confusing. There are over 200 factors that Google looks at to deicide where your website will rank. There are many on page factors like title and meta description tags and many off page factors like the type of backlinks, anchor text etc.
I have taken a quick look at your website and here are some recommendations.
Change your hosting, you are using SquareSpace, these websites are harder to rank because the ratio of code to text on the page is high. Hosting should only cost $5-10 per month and is a good investment.
Don't stuff a load of keywords in the keyword meta tag. The major search engines take no notice of this but if you stuff too many they will consider it to be spam.
If you are targeting a local market set up a Google business page, this will help with local rankings.
Get your business listed on some quality local and business directories. Your competitors seem to be doing well with yelp listings.
You site does rank for long tail keywords so evaluate the keywords you want to rank for. Competitive keywords can take years to rank for. Look at what your competitors are doing, see what types of backlinks they have to they websites using tools mentioned on this page and see if you can do something similar. I could only find 2 websites linking to your site so you will need to build some quality backlinks to rank your site.
Be careful when building backlinks, don't use spammy tactics, get links from quality related sites and don't stuff keywords in the anchor text.
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.
Hi, it depends on the keyword you are targeting, if it has high search volume It will take months or years, as your main Competitor are there sitting back on top since years, and on recent time no SEO will work on keywords optimization, do local Citation, and work with long tail keywords low searches ones.. Engage in PPC and read Moz articles on recent keywords Searchmetrics Ranking Factors 2014: Why Quality Content Focuses on Topics, not Keywords.. Make your content the best and share your content in web 2.0.. get the most natural anchor you could.
Christian, I would advise using some of the tools cited in other answers posted. Some keywords are seasonal or can simply fluctuate in activity due to online users habits. Depending on your subject matter, the search volumes for your specific keywords could be trending too low for this time of year.
If the competition for these keywords are too high, then your website may not show up until the volume increases again, or your pages become more relevant based on search queries.
Submitting a sitemap is very important after any significant updates, and make sure you're not using any methods that could get your website penalized. Otherwise, it takes a while for a website to begin ranking, especially if you recently launched the domain, even if it was 6 to 12 months ago.
SEO is great for making sure your content is positioned for search and sharing. The next step will be for you to publish more content, and actively promote it to your target market through the abundance of other online channels.
Keep producing relevant and optimized content, keep your pages active (don't delete your content), create a better mix of content (video, white pages, blog articles, etc.), have an active presence on social media, and be consistent in your efforts.
If you need to sell something (which most of us typically need to), invest in Paid Search Advertising, and make sure your keywords and content is optimized.
Keep producing, stay active, and don't settle for what you currently have. Reach for more every day or every week, whichever is more feasible.
