    Hi!

    I have been working on the SEO for http://www.crossfitalgonquin.com/ for weeks and can't figure out why it's not showing up in Google searches.
    I've added the Yoast SEO plug-in, titled each page with a specific heading, added Meta Descriptions and Titles etc...

    When I type in "crossfit algonquin fitness at its finest" into google, my site is the first option. Ideally, I'd like to be able to type in "crossfit algonquin" and have this site be an option, too.

    It is showing up in Google, just not with the particular keywords you desire.

    Thanks Andrew. So the keywords on the home page are "crossfit algonquin." Should I change all of the pages to the same key words?

    No, I don't think Google is that basic. You should go through Google's search engine guidelines for this http://static.googleusercontent.com/media/www.google.co.uk/en/uk/webmasters/docs/search-engine-optimization-starter-guide.pdf

    I don't think you should flood your pages on keywords, as often it's the scarcity of keywords (per content ratio) that improves rankings - I'm talking as a newbie who's just had an insightful workshop about it.
