How do I find out why competing sites are doing better in Google?

How do I find out which listings are pulling them up?

If you have enough traffic, alexa.com will show how you compare to other sites within a similar category. Alexa can only provide information based on people that have the Alexa toolbar installed, however, so take the numbers with a grain of salt.

Are you following any SEO rules? Is your website html/css valid? Are you using alt tags in images?

Just a little bit of advice...

  • I work on listings later. I think directories are more important. (The entries also exposes the business directly) Olav almost 9 years ago

The fact that you've misspelled every word on the page can't possibly be helping you.

Now that I've actually clicked through to the site, some other things have become clear. Two bits of advice come to mind immediately:

  1. You are using scans of your print brochures to provide content on the site. The text is images is not read by search engines, so I'd re-do this in text.
  2. I understand English isn't your first language, but I'd highly recommend finding a native English speaker to proof read all the content.

  • The business is actually performing quite well for English searches compared to competing business. Though the site is only performing well for one term ("thai massage", which is not the main business). In English the main goal now is to come higher than non-competing businesses (sex) for "Chinese massage" As said the question is about how to compare, and also I am looking for total business exposure.
