One of my sites  has been up about 7 weeks. If you
look up usbikestore without .com you see a reply "Do you mean UK bike
store? If you
click past this there are numerous listings for usbike store. However if you
look up Google does not recognize it at all. I have
tried typing in exact phrases from the title and descriptiion with no
results. Any ideas?

Hello gl1500,

Google has indexed your website as (not Have a look at this Google Output:

So instead of searching for, you need to search for If you want your website to be crawled as, you could try submitting it to Google as, but for my own websites (even if works properly) Google has indexed only If you get some website to link to you as then you might show up in those results as well.

If I do a search for: "When you make a purchase you are buying
directly from the merchant at no extra cost", your website comes up as
number four: ://
 If the Google cache version matches the text you are searching for,
your website should come up although because you are still new, you
might not show up at the beginning of the listings.

One immediate tip that I have for you is to include ?US Bike Store? in
your page titles and on the text of at least your first page, so that
you have a chance of showing up with a search of US Bike Store. Take a
look at this search output:
Your key words are not really present on most of your pages.

To get higher in the rankings, you need to have websites that are
already high on the listings (or have a high page rank) link to your
own. You have a start (see:
) but there is still a long way for you to go.

If you want to get to the top of the list immediately, you could try
Google Adwords if you are willing to pay (minimum is $0.05) for each
click to your website:

know if you require any clarification and I will do my best to respond
as soon as possible.

All the best,
