Hi Gustav,

Can you please let me know which search terms or phrases you are using when searching for your site?

I've run a quick search for two items from your website. First, I searched for "individualseekingdonations", which is a part of your domain and then for "Reverend Seeking Donations", which is the page title on your index page. Searching for both of these terms in Google, delivered results on the first page.

As you can see from the above screenshots, your site is definitely indexed. Having established that the site has already successfully been indexed, I had a look at your keywords and other meta data and it looks as though your keywords aren't correctly targeting your potential visitors.

If I can make a suggestion, it would be to research the keywords that visitors use to land on a site like yours. There are some good keyword research tools that will give you insight into what people are using for search phrases to find you.

Here are a few you can try:

Google Keyword Tool
Keyword Discovery

To use the keyword tool, just enter in a word, such as "donations needed", and the tool will return to you all the search phrases that include those keywords. You can then see which keywords people are searching for and choose some to use in your site's content.

Please let me know how this works for you, but keep in mind that any changes you make to your SEO, will not reflect immediately. Your changes will be indexed the next time the Google spider crawls your website.
