My website is only 3 years old, I have submitted the sitemap and followed everything for webmaster tools. My website comes in first page for yahoo, but it is no where listed in google. When I see the top search queries, it does not show my keywords at all! If I add the website name along with the keyword, then my website is listed in Google. Without the website name, my website is not listed even in the last page. What could be the reason?

I think Fred and AirForce have provided the most sensible recommendations. Submitting a sitemap and following some simple rules in Webmaster tools is not going to do all of the work. It sounds to me like you have a much more complex situation. You need to have unique content and optimize your site with both On-Page and Off-Page SEO tactics. You should read about these techniques both in wikepedia as Fred said or seomoz, which is one of the most complete SEO blogs around; you can even subscribe to it.

If you find that implementing SEO factors on your site seems too difficult for you to handle yourself then you may need to hire an expert.

Your site is probably lacking some links. In some cases and based on the business niches selected, a few links could be enough while at other times even hundreds of links might not be enough. You are recommended to check out the status of your colleagues to notice how they are doing.

Firstly I would recommend you carryout a key word density check on your website so that you can see how optimised your site is for your chosen keywords. Type keyword density checker in to google and it will provide you with some free tools.

Check to see if your page title is optimised along with meta description, keywords etc and of course the contents of your site.

Write some good articles on your sites subject which contain backlinks to your site using anchor text and then submit these articles through free article submission websites.

If you can start a blog on your site maybe with some key word rich articles, create some good backlinks and if possible post in some subject related forums which allow signature links.

Hope this helps
